As of September 22, it is officially Fall. People are running to Starbucks for their Pumpkin Spice Lattes, spirit Halloween stores are taking over the empty buildings, and the scent of pumpkin pie fills the air.
With this, comes the argument; when is to early to start celebrating? There are 3 different types of people when it comes to this disagreement.
First, we have the ‘Aesthetics’. These are the people who wake up at 12:01 a.m. on September 22 to decorate absolutely every inch of there house in leaves and pumpkins. There lawn is usually covered in fake headstones with hidden smoke machines around every corner. These people definitely hand out full sized candy bars on the special day.
Then there are the ‘Early Birds’. Early birds houses are naturally painted black year round, and they’re probably big into horror movies and true crime documentaries. Their favorite food is candy corn, and have about twice the amount of decor up than the ‘Aesthetics’.
The ‘Seasonally Sad’. You know who you are… The Seasonally Sad are just what they sound like. The cold weather and the jump scares just annoy them by now, and they definitely pretend they aren’t home when trick or treaters arrive. They will occasionally watch a holiday movie once or twice to ‘celebrate’ the season, but they stay away from warm apple cider candles.
Now here’s the problem, when should Halloween really start? The Seasonally Sad argue it shouldn’t, while the Early Birds beg to differ. What type of person are you?
