The 2K11 24/7 CCCIV: Halloween Humbug

Last updated on September 9th, 2014 at 10:25 pm


If there were the possibility of being a Halloween Humbug, that just might be me. It’s not that I don’t like Halloween. It’s not that, classically speaking, it’s a holiday of mixed religious origin. It’s not even that I feel like I’ve “outgrown” Halloween — I’m not about to go around and burst the bubble of anyone who really enjoys it.
It’s just not my thing.
I see Halloween as a highly commercialized day. It’s not a day we get to take off of work. Talk to any kid and I’m sure they’d be hard-pressed to tell you about the history of the holiday. I guess I just see it as a way for candy manufacturers to sell even more of their wares.
But that doesn’t mean that there isn’t anything that I can enjoy. I still enjoy a good, spooky story. And it has to be good, because I don’t scare easy.
This one sent to me by a friend of mine is a good example. Between a believable premise, relevance to our lives today and not overly explaining the events that unfold, I’d recommend it to anyone — Adam Butcher’s “Internet Story”:
So while I might not be stuffing my face with candy; while I might not be cleaning makeup off of my face before going to bed — I hope you all had a great Halloween filled with fears, scares, and hopefully not nightmares.
That’d just suck. Even on Halloween.
