Halloween just isn’t the same anymore

October 31, 2017

Halloween was my favorite holiday. Since I can remember, Halloween was my favorite day. I would spend hours figuring out which costume to wear each year. Was I going to be one of the many Disney princesses or opt for a scarier look like Ghostface from Scream, or Jason Voorhees from Friday The 13th?

The best days were when Halloween would fall on a school day, and I could have a day full of Halloween parties at school, come home and immediately start getting ready to walk through the neighborhood, going door to door to get candy.

Now, it’s so much different. All of a sudden it doesn’t even feel like Halloween anymore. What was once my favorite day ever is now just a typical day and I have no clue why.

I would love to celebrate Halloween, but is this just what happens when you get older?

All I want is to have the anticipation and surprise that comes with Halloween back like it was when I was younger.
