Random Thoughts on Halloween

1. Kids should get dressed up and go trick or treating, not teenagers.

2. Trick or treating at the mall is wrong. There has to be at least one safe neighborhood you can hit up.

3. A woman should be able to find a costume that isn't the slutty version of cop, nurse, cheerleader, doctor, angel, devil or whatever it is.

4. More people should make their kids costumes and not just buy them. It's a great way for kids to participate and make it even more special.

5. When it this holiday become ultra-commercialized?

6. I love candy corn.

I love your thoughts! I definitely like home-made costumes much more than store-bought.

Oooh, I'm firmly of the let-teenagers-go-out camp. Halloween is too fun to cut off at 12. We don't want teenagers getting involved with adult pleasures like drinking, etc. Why cut them off from the kid ones? Growing up slowly = good. I'll give candy to anyone pleasant wearing a costume (even adults). The teens look great and get a lot of enjoyment out of it. Not forgetting that "too-old" kids may just be "too-tall" kids. Some eleven year olds look like they're sixteen and vice versa.

I agree with you! (Well, except for the candy corn...)
