Halloween is a strange holiday. October 31st is the only day where we get do to a lot of stuff that would never be permitted to do otherwise.

Want to take candies from strangers? Go for it.

Want to put on a silly costume? By all means.

Want to get super drunk to commemorate the harvest’s end? Go right ahead.

But perhaps the strangest thing is that it is considered totally normal to scare your loved ones and make them fear for their own lives. That would be considered a dick move 364 days a year.
