10 Reasons Why Halloween Is The Best Holiday
We know what you’re thinking: “what about Christmas!” Well, hold your horses. There are plenty of uniquely fabulous things happening at Halloween that you won’t see at any other time of the year.
1. It’s the only time of year strangers give you sweets.
You don’t see people handing you a roast turkey at Christmas. Make the most of the freebies.
2. It’s okay to terrify people at random.
You might even be congratulated on your holiday spirit.
3. Pumpkin spiced lattes.
For those of you ignorant of this wonder, see Jenna Marbles.
4. Apple bobbing.
This is probably the dumbest sport ever invented, but only on Halloween is it okay to half-drown yourself collecting apples you won’t even eat. Enjoy.
5. You don’t have to buy presents for people.
Christmas is all about the presents. Let’s be honest, Valentine’s Day is about the presents too. Even on Easter you’re forced into buying chocolate eggs. But not on Halloween. Your purse is safe.
6. You don’t have to look good when you go out.
If you’re opting to get drunk this Halloween, don’t worry about fixing your hair or make-up. It’s the one time of year you get to be as hideous as possible.
7. Scary movies.
Of course there are films associated with most holidays, but how many times can you watch Elf before your mind melts with Will Ferrell’s humour? On Halloween you get to scare yourself witless with the latest, most horrifying freaky flicks. Embrace it with some popcorn and a cushion to hide behind.
8. You don’t have to make a fuss.
If you don’t want to, you can completely get away with not celebrating Halloween. Ignoring Christmas on the other hand is considered to be abominable.
9. Orange has never been so chic.
It’s garish and hard to wear, but this is the perfect time of year to go for it.
10. Food comes in funny colours.
If you happen to attend a Halloween party, the jelly, drinks, cake and sweets will likely all be orange and green. At no other time of year is it okay to have that many E numbers.
What do you know? Turns out Halloween is pretty awesome.
