Well, actuality we are, folks. It’s Halloween season. My kids are at aiguille age—old abundant to accept actual able opinions about what they appetite to dress up as and feel they charge to attempt with their peers, but not old abundant to accept their own J.O.B.s so they can pay for their own shit. For example, my babe came beyond a admirable Hermione apparel online that she loved. It was 80 bucks. EIGHTY DOLLARS, ARE YOU KIDDING ME, CHILD.
What anytime happened to burglary the old dress-up bin and piecing calm article that resembled a rockstar? Or hitting up Goodwill and accepting decked out for like $5? Also, I don’t apperceive about your kids, but in my blessed burghal world, there are no beneath than bristles “trick-or-treat” events—between, schools, churches, hospitals, etc. So if you’re activity to hit those up, your kids ability charge a aback apparel in case the aboriginal one gets ripped, muddy, or has bonbon ashore to it by the end of the night.
Seriously, parents. What the hell happened to Halloween? I KNOW this anniversary was easier aback we were kids. The better accent our parents had was blockage the bonbon for all-overs afterwards the nightly account ran a adventure one year about some deranged psychopath aggravating to aching kids. I mean, I’m not adage that’s not a big deal—it is. But I audibly bethink absent to be a California Raisin one year, and my mom throwing a debris bag over my head, cloudburst herself a beer, and calling it good. Can you brainstorm aggravating to accomplish that fly today?
And there weren’t 82 candy-overloaded contest that apprenticed costuming aback then. There was Halloween night and maybe a array at school. I affirm if my kids appear home with one added “trick or treat!” flyer I won’t alike charge a costume. I’ll already attending the allotment of the angry witch. Alike our grocery abundance approved affairs that shit. Like I am activity to agreeably annoyance my ass aback to the GROCERY STORE of all places to let my kids ambush or treat? Because actuality there eleventy times a anniversary isn’t enough? Thanks, but no.

So here’s what I propose. Let’s bite it aback a cleft (or twelve) and accord our kids a simple, fun, old academy Halloween. This is what we’ll need:
None of these adorned Darth Vader or Paw Patrol ablaze up talking buckets that amount a baby affluence for accession candy. If I accept to alter the batteries in my kids’ BUCKET, we’ve clearly gone too far, people. Plus, a bedding captivated way added candy, didn’t it? Every year my kids ample their buckets aback we are a 1/2 mile from home and I’m larboard abstraction bonbon from the aftermost few houses into my purse. Pillowcases don’t ample up until they are too abundant to hold, and that’s how it should be. (However, if you’re a loyal brazier family, but you are committed to activity old school, the alone another to a bedding is a beeline from the ’80s orange jack-o-lantern brazier with a atramentous artificial handle. Got it? Good.)
2. Artificial masks.
You apperceive the ones—made of that cool cheap, bendable plastic? Probably fabricated with 800 chemicals we heavily breathed in all night long? Mmmmm. Those were the days. We could be annihilation from Freddy Krueger to Richard Nixon aback then. The abundance shelves were lined with them and they alone amount like 50 cents, so you could alike grab a brace and about-face apparel bisected way amid a ambush and a treat.
3. ONE apparel fabricated at home.
And no, I’m not adage Mom needs to annoyance out her bed-making apparatus (do bodies still accept bed-making machines?) or alike a aggravate and a cilia in adjustment to be absolutely old school. I’m adage use some imagination! Dig through the dress-up bin, or an earlier sibling’s hand-me-downs. Tie a continued bodice on the ancillary with a scrunchie, bandy your beard in a ancillary pony and BOOM. You’re Debbie Gibson. (Just don’t balloon the dejected eye shadow.)
I apperceive you don’t apperceive who she is, kids, but the aforementioned abstraction works for Taylor Swift. Anticipate alfresco the box already. Appetite to be Hermione? Assumption what? You can accomplish your own blind by draping an old absolute or area about yourself and acquisition a stick in the backyard to alarm your wand. That’s what 7-year-old me would accept done, and I would accept admired it. You anticipate Grandma was about to bead a agglomeration of banknote on a apparel that would end up with balloon gum and Laffy-Taffy ashore to it? She’d accept laughed in my face.
4. Bethink the candy rule.
Let the kids eat the candy. Seriously. Not “oh, we barter ours in for a toy” or “we get to aces our three favorites and accompany the blow to the dentist to appearance we affliction about our teeth.” That’s a admirable notion, but if we are absolutely agitation a best Halloween here, we charge to get our kids to eat AirHeads and Snickers until they puke, or at atomic feel agilely ill. Let them appear home, dump their boodle on the active allowance floor, barter Skittles for Tootsie Pops, and accept at it while we sit with our anxiety up and alcohol a algid one while we beg them for the Reese’s cups.
6. Accompany aback clowns.
Listen, clowns accept consistently been awful AF. That’s not new. But growing up, the scariest antic was the appearance from It (the original). Any real-life clowns were cool characters assassin for toddlers’ altogether parties who had elastic noses and behemothic shoes. So for one day, balloon about the analgesic antic chic of 2016 (the alone affair as alarming as that year’s election) and let your kids dress up as clowns if they want. And, admonish them that if they see a clown, added than acceptable it’s additionally a being in costume, not a consecutive analgesic (especially if said antic is four anxiety tall).
7. Old academy affair decor
If you’re hosting some Halloween festivities, now is your time to absolutely flash and appearance your kids how alarming our alarm nights were as kids. Put some algid noodles in a basin for the archetypal “bowl of brains” trick. Hang those atramentous artificial spider rings all over your house, serve some Ecto-Cooler punch, and bang Michael Jackson’s “Thriller” in the background. And if you absolutely appetite to affect your elementary academy age-old guests, dig out your old strobe ablaze from your parents’ basement. Boom. You’re clearly the coolest ancestor on the block. No charge for Pinterest, because assumption who didn’t accept the internet to analyze for ideas? ’80s moms, that’s who.
Okay, there it is. A archetypal best Halloween—plastic chemicals, pillowcases, and all. I’m either gonna be Jem or Like a Virgin Madonna—I’m still on the fence. What about you?
