Of course, I can succeed in claiming that Halloween is a fun night in which kids get to dress up as their favorite characters from various movies and get germy candy from complete strangers. However, when I am sitting there waiting for my own Halloween plans to commence, I do not enjoy opening the door and seeing a four foot two inch, snotty kid dressed as a gruesome, undead zombie boy. That image is just something that I could go without seeing. Facilitating children dressing up as chilling personages from various nightmarish ideas, is not something that I think is necessary.
Additionally, horror movies and haunted houses do not seem enjoyable in the slightest. Immersing yourself in a place or film that makes paranormal activity experienceable… sounds awful. Not only do horror movies and haunted houses invoke terror, but they also make one so much more susceptible to nightmares and the unrest that accompanies such a feeling of vulnerability and danger. Plus, nightmares increase the likelihood to wet the bed by 99.9999%. That statistic is fake, but horror movies and haunted houses just sound so very terrifying, I can't even fathom why an individual would desire to be scared witless.
In summary, Halloween and all things regarding the horrific holiday should be exterminated from this planet immediately. Halloween is not only horrid and alarming, but it's also a large contributor to nightmares and wetting of beds worldwide. (Plus, I just straight up don't like it when little kids dress up as grim reapers and soul-stealing ghouls.)
