Unpopular Opinion : I Can’t Stand Halloween!

Yes, yes I’m one of those horrible people who, come the night of 31st October, shuts all the curtains, turns off all the lights, and stays perfectly still and quiet with every knock of the door. (We turn the doorbell off as it’s electric but the cheeky buggers can’t take a ruddy hint can they?!) And it isnt because I’ve run out of chocolate like the advert suggests! It brings out all the small people doesn’t it, and we all know by now how I feel about small people. Now if you were bringing your Jack Russells and chihuahuas out dressed as pumpkins, that would be another matter! I’m not a crazy cat lady, I’m a crazy dog lady...and proud of it too so there.

Another thing that this time of month encourages is scary films. Every channel too. I can’t handle it, I’m anxious enough and like to be able to sleep at night. It’s not just on TV either is it? They advertise on YouTube, I settle down with a cuppa to watch Tati review another foundation and boom. There’s a creepy clown with a load of red balloons grinning at me. 

Are you all shaking your heads in disapproval yet?

Im not a complete bore though! Don’t give up on me just yet because here is what I do like about Halloween. I like scrolling through Instagram and Facebook and seeing all the talented peoples nail art designs, they seem to get better and better with each passing year. Even the gory ones! People do such an amazing job, so creative. The amount of time and patience it must take too.

I also like to see all the Halloween makeup too, people are getting so creative and one of my favourite things to do at the moment is watch the SFX tutorials, seeing a perfectly normal person transform themself into a troll or zombie. It’s incredible! 

So there we have my unpopular opinion. Surely it can’t be just me who doesn’t like Halloween? Can it?

Thanks for reading and see you tomorrow!
