I have to say, this year left me bitterly disappointed. Not for one of the many reasons you may expect, like a stomach ache from too much candy or a headache from being kept up all night with nightmares fresh from the movies. Contrary to what you may expect, I love horror flicks, I adore games designed to shock.
But rather, I was left bitter from the efforts that the City of Glasgow made for one of my all time favourite holidays.
Of all the stores that actually stocked the pathetic Halloween items on offer, most had them taken down before the 25th! Shelves stocked with Christmas chocolates, and walls adorned with strings of lights.
Walking through the City Centre on Halloween night left me with mixed feelings. Drunk residents in less than lazy costume efforts and Christmas lights lighting their ‘stage’.
Instead, I opted to create my own Halloween, with friends. While it wasn’t the scare-tacular we would have opted for, we still had a pretty fun evening.
