The grinch of Halloween


No, I’m not the grinch of Halloween. I love Halloween. It’s probably my second favorite holiday. My favorite is Thanksgiving (read: lots of great food, little commercialization).

But Major Nelson – my friend over in XBox Live – just wrote a post about how he hates Halloween. How can you hate Halloween? I have some theories:

– Somebody toilet papered Major Nelson’s house last year
– Major Nelson, as a young Cadet Nelson, had his candy stolen by a pack of neighorhood punks. Unfortunately in real life you can’t send feedback and have their accounts banned. 🙂
– Major Nelson doesn’t like trick-or-treaters interrupting his XBox Live sessions (I can understand this!)
– Major Nelson is diabetic and therefore can’t experience the sweet side of Halloween. Mmmm… candy…

Of course, there is one aspect of Halloween that I hate as well. And that’s candy corn. Check out Dan’s blog from our discussion yesterday!

Now if you’ll excuse me I have to go get the finishing touches for my Borat costume. Jagshemash!

    I worked for a company that managed a chain of seasonal Halloween retail stores. I helped with the installation of POS systems in the stores. That will turn you into a Grinch, just like working in a department store might turn you into a Grinch at Christmas.
