My name is Shar and I'm a fully fledged, self confessed hypocrite.
This is what my hypocrisy happened to look like today :
Hubby agreed to join some neighbours in celebrating Halloween and trick-or-treating this year.
I usually stock up on treats for the local kids, but am not a big fan of celebrating Halloween myself.
Whilst I wasn't going to be a total party pooper and
stand up for my beliefs stop Magoo from joining in, I didn't feel comfortable with the whole thing.
I asked Hubby if he would accompany Magoo and the other kids 'cause trick-or-treat doesn't sit well with me - and told Magoo I'd prefer him to greet people with 'Happy Halloween' please!
A hypocrite and a coward - I'm quite the catch, really.
I feel that Halloween is an Americanised commercial occasion that is creeping into Australian culture for some unknown reason.
I feel that the whole premise of trick-or-treat is nasty and rude (as well as sugar loaded before bedtime!).
I feel that one look at this little pirate man all dressed up turned me to mush.
I pathetically grabbed the camera and followed his cute little self out the door and straight up the neighbour's drive!!!
Happy Halloween after all!!
