When Your Favorite Holiday Is Halloween

Updated on October 19, 2017

People Think You're Weird

More times than not, people think you are really weird and that you are childish if your favorite holiday is Halloween. Either that, or they will only like certain parts of this wonderful holiday. Either they like just the candy, just the parties so they can dress up and drink in public, or they just like the fact that they can go and get slutty costumes. For those of us that really love this holiday, it is about so much more than all of that. It is about being yourself, letting your creativity out, and showing everyone how imaginative you can be.

"Grow Up!"

When you tell people that your favorite holiday is Halloween, some will tell you to grow up. They think that all you want to do is play dress up and get candy like a little kid. Many will tell you that Halloween is for kids and that unless you have small children you shouldn't celebrate it.

So Many Possibilities

A lot of people love Halloween for the simple fact that they get to become anyone and anything they want. The video above is from a YouTuber that only makes Halloween makeup videos. She doesn't have a ton of videos but her YouTube channel is called Courtney Little Makeup. People like her, make a living from Halloween themed videos and tutorials.

Tim Burton and Johnny Depp

Those names sound familiar, right? Of course they do! Everyone has heard of The Nightmare Before Christmas and The Corpse Bride. Tim Burton is known as one of the most amazing directors. He has many more spooky and Halloween type movies. Some titles include:

  • The Nightmare Before Christmas
  • The Corpse Bride
  • Frankenweenie
  • Edward Scissorhands
  • Alice in Wonderland
  • Sweeney Todd
  • Beetlejuice

There are so many more to add to that. He also makes his living from Halloween type media and entertainment.

My Reason For Halloween Being The Best

I was raised by a mother who loves Halloween with all of her being. She waits for 364 days a year for the holiday to come back around. I love Halloween because it is one of the only holidays that you don't have to make a huge meal for, you don't HAVE to have a party, and you get to have as much fun as you want with it. You can showcase the costumes or decorations that you have been working so hard on. You get to see all of those cute little kids in their adorable costumes!

Pros And Cons


  • Teenagers spend less time drinking and getting into trouble by going trick or treating
  • Again, cute kids
  • Creativity can be bragged about
  • Kids get to go and talk to neighbors reducing social anxiety by a little bit
  • Killer sales at stores


  • Unfortunately, you have to check the candy
  • Those teens that are told that trick or treating is for little kids will be going out and getting into trouble
  • Having to buy candy for trick or treaters
  • It only lasts one day (for some)

Don't Take Just My Word For It

Did I Change Your Mind?

I know, for religious reasons, many people can't or won't celebrate Halloween and this article was not meant to bash your religion or make you go against it. It was purely for the fact that Halloween isn't JUST for the little kids, or candy, or even just for the parties. It is for those that love to challenge their own creativity or show it off. For those people that just want to have fun and see what they can come up with, or even just a way to spend more time with their families.
