|Not My Pumpkin!|
As though it were a slightly sour sweet.
Let terror, then, be turned into a treat..."

It's Halloween weekend, and what does that mean? Well, if you live in an urban area and aren't an introvert, you will be seeing scantily clad women embracing their inner showgirl and men dressed up to chase them. When did it become mandatory that adults dress in costume on Halloween? Wasn't this originally a child's holiday?
Regardless of the rampant immaturity that takes place, this holiday of Celtic / Christian origin is especially endearing to us, for as you know we at FugginSuggin.com love going against the grain, and the fact that a pagan holiday with such a bacchanal nature to it is embraced by Christianity is so ironic that it bring a fuggin smile to my face.
