It is All Hallows Eve, everyone! I've never understood that, its not the "eve" of anything except the first of November. Which, last time I checked, was nothing important. An interesting fact is the reason people originally dressed up and gave out things were to hide from the dead, and gave out treats as a peace offering. Over the centuries, the tradition kept on, but altered a bit. People slowly began realizing children were not small adults, and deserved to just have fun every once and a while, and started letting them "Trick or treat".
Now, its a fun holiday, but originally it wasn't even truely a "holiday". Holidays are good, Halloween was a fearful day. People were scared that they'd be haunted by spirits and demons.
Really, if you want to think about it now, "trick or treating", isn't just for kids. Yes, this is me defending myself a little seeing as I am going out tonight, all decked out, and going trick or treating. None of the kids I am going with are under the age of 13. We range from thirteen to eighteen, and you know what? I don't care! Free candy is free candy, and hell for all those people know, we could all be collecting candy as an offering for the spirits! Not just to eat, which is what we're doing, but some people might still be like that.
I do believe in spirits, and ghosts, but I do not believe in demons. Why? I don't have a clue, I just don't believe in them. What people also don't realize is Halloween also a pagan holiday, called Samhain. Its basically their Christmas, on the relgious aspect. They have big festivals, and some take that time to dub in new "witches".
So remember everyone, while you're out with your friends or sitting at home passing out candy and watching some scary movie, that Halloween is not just a day for free candy. It can be, but its not always. There are some people who are serious about this holiday, and there are some that are just in it for the sugar. I personally, am just in it to have an excuse to dress up, get a ton of candy for me to munch on for a while, and hang out with friends.
This being said, all I am being for Halloween is a vampire/ gothic person/ Andy Biersack. Yes, I just said Andy Biersack. I was trying to dress like Andy, while having Ashley Purdy's hair style, as I already have that basically. Its not working too well, Black Veil Brides makeup is kinda hard for me. So, I'll be dressed like myself, only the self I am too lazy to do half the time.
I love the emo/ gothic style, but most of the time I am too lazy to put on the outfit, get my hair perfect, and do my makeup. I'm not a girly girl for the most part, and all of that feels too time consuming for me! I've been told though, that it works very well for me.
What are you guys being for Halloween, as well as what are you doing?
Happy Halloween to all! I can't believe it'll be November tomorrow! Where the hell did the year go?
