I'm going to keep this post brief because I don't have a lot to say if truth be told.
I feel like it's controversal to say but I actually dislike Halloween. Apparently I did do trick or treating, but don't remember it. I just remember dressing as a witch every year and hanging out with other family/friends. I might have tried to carve a pumpkin with my Mum and Gran a few times too, but that's as far as it goes.
Why do I not like Halloween?
1. My birthday is the 26th October, so Halloween served as a constant reminder that the presents, kindness, good food, cake and surprises was over.
2. I hate dressing up. I've done my fair share from dressing as a daffodil for Marie Curie to dressing as an easter bunny for my fundraising efforts to climb Kilimanjaro
3. I've never found any horror films that I've enjoyed or that scare me.
4. I don't understand why people want to find ways to be scared.
5. I can't really think of further reasons, but it seems like a pointless event
That being said, I genuinely wish you a "happy halloween" whatever you're doing. I'm guessing the majority of you might have enjoyed it over the weekend. I have friends who love to curl up watching horrors, or dressing up. Just because I don't doesn't mean I can't appreciate why it's popular. It's nice to see kids dressed up or carving pumpkins, which has filled my current facebook feed.
I'm going to try to embrace this occasion watching a few horrors including: Case 39, Invasion of the Body Snatchers, then perhaps Leprechaun, Return of the Living Dead and Poltergeist II. Unfortunately they are the best selection on Netflix, and not seen that much worth seeing on TV. Any better recommendations to be found on TV are much appreciated! Keen to watch something I've not already seen.
What are you doing this halloween?
As this is my final post, I'd like to say thank you to Hex Mum for getting my creative juices flowing. It's been great, but think I will be glad of the break. For those bloggers, who wished to get involved, Hexmum and Me Becoming Mum are doing #AlphaBlogBites this November too. To get involved, you write the following types of posts:
Further rules are available on the Facebook group here. Unfortunately I think this is too much for me to do! I have come across of blog ideas recently that I hope to write, and hope you will enjoy reading! I'm also thinking of taking up another blogging challenge, which I hope more people wish to take part in.#dreamandsparkle is weekly posts displaying positive posts detailing things you are proud of, achievements, milestones, or any type of post that makes you feel good. I hope to do a post every Sunday starting this week, so if I don't blog for a while, it won't be until then.
