It’s a giant scam.
You pay ridiculous prices for complete crap. The amount of money that is made from one day is fucking ridiculous.
Sure, our kids have fun getting tons of free candy and enjoy dressing up like their favorite super hero or something they wish they were.
But where do we draw the line? How many millions of dollars have to be wasted on garbage (candy) and junk plastic costumes that are worn for half a day at best, then stuffed in storage to be forgotten about.
I wonder if we used all the wasted money on Halloween for a good purpose how much better off we could be.
What if instead of spending $50 on a costume and or another $50 on candy we used that money to better ourselves. Donate to charity, save an animal, help the homeless, etc.
I’m not trying to preach or be a tree huger, but honestly, I don’t think anyone can right out tell me that Halloween is really necessary.
Although…It sure is a great excuse for girls to dress like complete sluts and get away with it.
