Halloween is rapidly approaching. Survivng the Day of the Dead and the Night of the Non-living will require fortitude, strength, cunning, and a clever costume witht the potential to go viral.
The creatures of the night laugh heartily into the open-mic of the underworld, where hecklers are doomed to an eternity of being crushed by the talent.
A celebration of mortality, morbidity, and the undeniable attraction to grossness.
And although Halloween only comes once a year, the literal appreciation of physical depreciation remains in the foreground of our fears all year long.
Some of us seek to make peace with our fears, using the traditions and customs of Halloween to assuage our anxieties, while others see the occasion as the singular opportunity to merge death with life in their minds and hearts.
But regardless of whether the masses heed the portentous meaning of Halloween, one thing remains certain: ain’t no party like a dead man’s party, ’cause a dead man’s party don’t stop!
