Halloween

What Are Your Halloween Plans?

Halloween is just around the corner, and for many people that I know, Halloween is one of the most fun holidays of the year in the United States, and it's gaining momentum worldwide. Little kids dress up and go trick-or-treating; high school students go to costume parties; college students go to bigger costume parties and host events at bars and clubs if they're legal; adults spend time with their children or even going to parties themselves with friends.

How are you going to spend your Halloween this year?

What Costume Are You Wearing?

We all know about the stereotypical girl Halloween "rules"... cute and sexy, not scary!

DUH!

Costumes are what makes Halloween fun, unless you're #TeamSkinnyFatAss like me and some of my friends and just want to binge on candy. While I don't personally condone you acting out like Ice in Hocus Pocus--being able to enjoy yourself with a belly full of 3 Musketeers, Reese's Peanut Butter Cups, and avoiding Candy Corn at all costs is far more than an acceptable way to punish yourself in preparation for the following month's Thanksgiving Festivities!

So what do you all plan to dress as? There's the classic "Scream" get-up. There's comic book characters like Superman and Deadpool. There are legendary horror slashers like Michael Myers and Freddy. There are witches and devils and ghouls! Or you can go as a dude disguised as a dude playing another dude--or his latest incarnation of Iron Man! Maybe you even like to dress your pets in Halloween costumes!

So leave a comment and let us know what Halloween Costume you will (or won't) be wearing!

Decorations!

I'm that kid who always wanted to go see the lights and decorations on Christmas and Easter. Going for a ride with my grandparents or aunt was always fun. But on Halloween, you have to have your little house of Hell and haunts to keep passers and visitors drawn in, and/or freak them the Hell out! When I was a kid going trick-or-treating, we always had to visit a house that went over-the-top with decorations--lights, music, dummies, the whole shabang-a-bang! This guy even had a 30-foot skeleton that leaned over the entire front yard of his house! It was incredible--and fear-inducing for a young child, but fun!

Do you already have decorations? Do you plan on buying some? Do you not care for the showmanship?

Don't Laugh, People! Mwahaha!

My take on The Dark Knight's Scarecrow
Here at Don't Laugh, People, we obviously take Halloween seriously! We love to dress up, and even personally do the work to design our own costumes if it isn't something that we can buy straight up. We try to keep it theme-related every year while we go hang out with family, but it's perfectly acceptable for everyone to do their own thing based on what they want to do and what they're in the mood to do.

As you can see to the right, I dressed with my own take on The Dark Knight's version of Scarecrow with help from my best friend/brother. If you've ever made your own costume, or plan on making one this year, shoot us an email and submit some pictures (of the costume).

Try Not to Die!

Or be safe, to be more politically corre... no, you know what? F-that! Try not to die! Halloween is full of fake spooky, horrific things... but also full of a lot of the real ones as well. People use Halloween as their cover to actually commit heinous crimes such as robbery, murder, assault, and poisoning! Always be wary of your surroundings, the people you interact with, and anything you come into contact with. CHECK THAT CANDY, FOLKS!

But most importantly, have a Happy Halloween!
