It’s that time of year again when people dress like they have no sense and some people forbid their children from taking part in the festivities.

It’s Halloween.

Let me be blunt: Halloween is a bullshit holiday.

Halloween is an example of a holiday that has become so commercialized, it may as well change its name.

Does anyone know what the origin of this holiday really is?

It’s obviously not to honor the dead, like the Mexican holiday Día de los Muertos, because while I see people in graveyards, it’s never at anyone’s grave that they know.

Halloween is derived from Samhain, a Celtic tradition.

Samhain was a night where the line between the living and the dead was blurred.

People would attempt to ward off the spirits, which is where the tradition of dressing as scary things came from.

How did such a prestigious holiday degrade into the one that it is today? Horribly movies, idiots who try to summon ghosts and stupid costumes.

Speaking of costumes, how about those outfits some girls wear?

I’m not going to get too deep into that. If you want to know more, read Elizabeth Perry’s “Slutty Halloween Costumes,” but I doubt that sexy schoolgirls can ward away spirits.

I also have beef with people who try to summon spirits and all types of other ghosts and whatnot.

How idiotic are you? Why would you do something completely contrary to the holiday?

Whatever. You people strike me as morons.

Why do people only attempt to do this stuff on Halloween anyway?

There are days that are far better suited to communicating with the supernatural – like the winter solstice – but those Halloween posers wouldn’t know that.

They just try to emulate what they see in movies.

By the way, movies are another thing that annoys me about Halloween.

People just watch the same boring “classics” over and over again, like “Halloween,” ”Hellraiser,” “Nightmare on Elm Street,” Stephen King movies – the list goes on and on.

Let me repeat: People like them because they are nostalgic, but in reality, the quality of these movies is lacking. The cheesy animations, lack of coherent plot and worn-out stereotypes make many movies worthless.

I’m not talking about all Halloween movies. There are good ones, but you can’t deny that most Halloween movies are a rehashing of the same tired plot and characters who lack development.

Halloween has lost all semblance of its former self and is just an excuse to fool around.

There’s nothing that we do on Halloween that we couldn’t do on any other day of the year.

I can’t believe that people get so excited for Halloween, when they don’t even know what the holiday is about.

Honestly, that’s the scariest thing about Halloween.
