    I Had Some Satire Thoughts ... It's What Is Inside That Counts ...

    I like the combination of a person that can have a good inside and make their outside look good and shine with beauty. Flowers make a beautiful outside appearance and it does so from the inside of the plant's DNA chemistry. I don't Celebrate Halloween.  I really don't like...

    My Last Halloween.

    I have a good explanation why I hate Halloween and don't celebrate it. When I was 16, I was deathly afraid of clowns. I went trick or treating with my friend. We were going door to door until I was stopped by a man in a clown mask. I started hyperventilating and hid behind my...

    Basically I just sat home watching horrors

    movies on Netflix while it rained a **** ton, eating Panda Express and talking to my favorite person. Wouldn't have wanted to spend it any other way. ¯ _(ツ)_/¯

    I Sure Miss Halloween...

    Here it comes again. My favorite holiday that I no longer celebrate. I'm a scarer. I LOVE to scare people and be scared. Most of the time, I'm scaring people for no reason and they get mad. Halloween was my excuse to scare them anyway. Jump out of a closet, put on a mask and dark...

    When I Was A Kid, It Barely Registered Here

    ...but that was 40/50 years ago. It is only since the 1990s, and even more recently, that this festival has been exploited commercially here (in the UK), with displays of tat in all but the most modest of retail premises. This year, one of the local supermarkets has set up...

    Simply Because-

    I do not like the strong and frequent symbolism of violence and death. By this I am referring to Scream costumes, zombies, blood splattered everything, all assortments of fake wounds and gore, expressions of evil on various masks with the intention of fright etc. It would be one...

    Just Never Have.

    I was never allowed to go trick or treating. I find the holiday to be evil, and I don't think my child will be celebrating it either. That will have to be me and my husbands decision...

    My Reasons

     I do not believe in celebrating Halloween. This is actually something that I feel very strongly about.  Let me start out with explaining one thing. If you can celebrate with a clean and clear conscience, then go for it. I, however, cannot do that. Now, let me...
