Trick or Treat! Why is this Holiday such an intriguing one? Is it because we all have a frightful side to us or maybe even a bit of an evil side to us? We are human after all and when you think about it, we all have the capacity to either act out in an evil way or choose to restrain ourselves from causing self harm or harm to others. But it is to be frightened and to do the scaring, all depends on who you ask. It is the minds mysterious ways that I think makes this Holiday so appealing.
I think it also gives some of us the opportunity to dress up and feel like we can act like that one character for the night or even week depending on all the Halloween parties that you attend. It may make you forget a little bit of the bummer side of life and escape for just a bit. It is liberating in a way to be seen differently and also to play the part of a confident character. Its all good for the self esteem- well, unless you choose a super scary something that you enjoy portraying only.
It's also a great way to have amazing family time! To dress up and to partake in the traditions of having fun with the costumes, candy, and tricks. It can definitely bring families closer and allows them to see the creativity in their kids. Parents may discover that their child has a great talent and vice versa.
All around, Halloween is a fun and unique holiday! Stay safe and have a ton of fun...
