Is it me, or has Halloween gone off the rails?
Maybe it’s Halloween’s pagan ancestry laced with an alternative, irreverent edge that’s a cause. Maybe it’s just that we are overexposed to so many costumes via media at large and are looking for more “unique,” “creative” costume material. Maybe it’s proliferated by the seemingly shameless profiteering Halloween economy. Or maybe Halloween’s modern sensibilities are just dictated by different standards of decency.
It’s that time of year again. Brace yourself for the Left Sharks and Donald Trumps and their more scandalous, insensitive counterparts: pregnant nuns, Caitlyn Jenners, Baby Hitlers, and ... lord, I hope nothing worse.
