One of the things that has saddened me about Halloween recently is the apparent sexualization of costumes. Many store-bought costumes, even ones for kids, are becoming skimpier. Some can't be worn outdoors on a cold night like we have in Canada at the end of October, like the mini-skirted Monster High stuff.
Granted there are adults who might like to dress up for fun at parties and such. But they're in a minority.
Speaking of store-bought, that's another thing. Fewer costumes seem to be home-made these days. I remember every single one of my Halloween costumes was hand-made by my mother, either from a pattern or from her own imagination. I guess people just don't seem to have the time or make the time to do it. It's unfortunate.
I think I'll just sit back with some candy and watch a Tim Burton flick.
