Hell hath no fury like a kid in costume scorned.
A dude in Oshawa, Ontario elected not to hand out candy this Halloween which prompted a letter from the kids in the hood expressing their displeasure.
Clearly parental editing was involved.
But the story doesn’t end there. Then came the retort via kijiji:
“Dear Children of Entitlement (and likely their parents), you have gone ahead and reminded me of why I do not want children and why I weep for the future.”
Good for him.
I for one enjoy Halloween: the costumes, decorations and the goodies. However, where is it written that every homeowner needs to be home, stocked with junk food.
Participation in Halloween is voluntary, not compulsary. You have the freedom to dress up. Others have the freedom to not dress up. You have the freedom to go door to door begging for candy. Others have the freedom to deactivate their doorbell and hide in the den. Neither action is wrong. There’s no need to ridicule those who participate and there’s no need to harass those who opt out.
Same goes for another tradition soon approaching: Christmas.
Listen. I celebrate Christmas. I’m not offended if you don’t so don’t be offended by those of us who do.
I guess what I’m trying to say is… check yourself; before you wreck yourself.
