Debate of the Day: Too Old for Halloween?

A sneak preview.

It’s a debate even among my own circle of friends right now. Are we too old for Halloween? As a child, it’s one of the best days of the year, where you get tons of candy and everyone says how cute you look. As a college student, it’s one of the best days of the year, where you get tons of alcohol and you tell everyone ELSE how cute they look. But as that memory drifts further away, the question stands, how old is too old for Halloween?

I’m personally of the opinion that it’s a holiday that should be adopted by all ages. Here’s the schedule:

0-12 – Trick or treating

12-18 Jr. High and High School Halloween dances.

18-23 – Halloween college parties.

23-90 (no little kids) – Halloween bar night

23-90 (with little kids) – Dress up when you take them trick or treating.

Why? Because dressing up in costume is fun damnit, and every other Holiday out there is based on religious tradition rather than just plain fun. Please don’t launch into some story about the religious roots of Halloween about warding off demons because I really don’t care. As it stands, it’s not  religious holiday, and while Christmas and Easter and Hanukkah and all that can be fun, it’s always about something else as well, which is totally cool, but we just need a time to let loose and be goofy or sexy or badass or whatever you want to be free of judgment, race, religion or creed.

So that’s my pitch, what do you say?
