When I was young, Halloween was a holiday for the young. The adult role in Halloween seemed limited to staying at home and giving out candy. And limited candy intake later in the evening.
Well, times have changed. These days Halloween is every bit as much for adults as it is for kids…. perhaps more so. And it’s a sexy holiday. It seems everyone is going to an adult halloween party and, as often as not, the costumes are of the sexy variety. At a couple local swing clubs, Halloween is (by far) the biggest night of the year. And at least 3 local hotels have takeover party for [very] adult-themed Halloween parties.
So what’s to be thought of the ‘adultification’ of Halloween. Personally, I couldn’t be happier. It is wonderful to see so many otherwise buttoned-down, uptight parents and other adults letting it all hang loose of the evening. A neighbour of ours – a pretty darn conservative parent 364 days a year – was looking fantastic last night in her naughty nurse outfit. She didn’t do anything crazy… but for one night she let her sexy side show. And it was great to see. It made me like her more.
So… what are everyone’s sexy Halloween plans?
