The best parties all year are always on halloween. If it was up to me, we should have this holiday once a quarter. The streets of every big city open up and everyone just lets loose. We can put aside our everyday character and become whoever we feel, will best represent us. It's always a laugh watching people in customer, because after a short while we engage in our alter ego and act out accordingly. Everyone get out there and enjoy the madness of Halloween.
Does anyone remember that old (original) Star Trek episode where they visited a planet with an almost totally repressed society which had one festival every so often to let of steam?
All of them went completely bonkers?
Is that what you are thinking?
Halloween is definitely a fun holiday and was originally a religious holiday where people dressed up as their favorite saints. But Halloween is not the only holiday where you can be uncharacteristic and dress up to be another character. Mardi Gras has the same type of atmosphere and is celebrated in the early spring of the year. Again, a religious holiday celebrated before Lent with costumes and parades and complete abandonment.
