Valentines day is about love, Christmas is about giving, Arbor Day is about trees I guess. I get celebrating all those things, but Halloween? Halloween is a holiday where we put on costumes and try on different versions of ourselves. The princess, the demon, the bird flying free. It’s fun not being us and having to face the reality of who we really are and the things that scare us, like our vulnerabilities, or what we really want for ourselves. Or our fear of change and what it will inevitably bring. Being someone else for a night can be fun or even scary, either way it’s only one night and when the masks are off we’re back to being ourselves again. We have nothing to hide behind and maybe that’s okay.
