    They trick us into shoving it down our throat by constantly exposing us to it everywhere. We just have to regurgitate it back up.

    I actually love Halloween.

    I just hate how abused it is. There's nothing creative or thoughtful about it most times, it's just free candy. Free candy is very nice, but... Eh, it's just not fun like it was before.

    It's just a tacky "holiday" that's primarily for pre-teens due to the nature it's taken. For adults and a good number of teenagers, it's a reason to dress up slutty/strangely and party until you're so drunk you think you're a real vampire.

    It's one extreme or the other, really.

    Personally, I have the same regard for it as I do a story. Execution is everything... And the execution is often extremely tacky. I'd honestly be more impressed by a toilet paper mummy than most of the things that people buy in the stores.

    It also caters to cosplayers, but the majority of those don't even need to wait for Halloween.

    They were a century ago. Now, we are indeed.

    Hence why I don't like it.

The US is shoving it down your throat in so far as they are a more powerful country than any other country in the world, leaving everyone else with few options. It's almost impossible to modernize to the level of America without adapting their culture. The US isn't shoving it down your throat, you are.

    This coming from the one who was trying to force history down our throats? :s
