Welcome once again Wednesday Warriors and Happy Halloween!
A lot of debate surrounds this candy-filled, costume-covered day. Superstitions surround carved pumpkins (a friend recently told me her pastor gave a sermon on the evils of this particular fruit - I think my friend Sharon would agree, at least, when it comes to pumpkin spice), some individuals lean into the gore far too much for my liking, and graphic horror movies torment my advertisements (thank you Hulu for allowing me to edit what ads I see). But at the end of the day, most of us just want to munch on candy and dress up.
Why do we enjoy dressing up? Maybe it's because it's fun to have a new identity for a couple of hours. Maybe it's just to let our inner creativity out. Or maybe it's just because you spent a crap ton of money on a costume a few years ago and want to justify the purchase. Whatever the reason, most of us love the break from our regular clothes, make up, and hair.
My question for this week is: What are you dressing up as this year? If you're not dressing up, then what was your favorite costume and why?
If you have a second, I'd love to know!
