I can’t believe NPR is doing a story on it at the first of September and I can’t believe that stores will have Halloween garbage in stock before Labor Day. I wish the wretched day of destructive depravity and devil worship would just fade away. It appears to be doing well though (which is thoroughly unsurprising given the fact that the world is crammed full of Devil food)(and by that I mean evil people who love to revel in death and destruction and beggery).
If you walk into the Safeway near Washington, D.C.’s Chinatown, you’ll see a small display of Halloween decorations: witches hats, haunted houses, jack-o-lanterns — the works. That might not seem so strange if it were October or even late September. But it hasn’t even hit Labor Day yet. Safeway isn’t the only retailer getting a jump on the holiday. Across the city, shoppers will find Halloween merchandise in Walgreens, Claire’s Accessories, Target and Macy’s.
Blah. Have I mentioned how much I hate Halloween? Well I do.
