2019 Halloween Holiday: The 4 ‘The Shit!’ and Some ‘Shitty’ Stuff


2019 Halloween Holiday: The 4 ‘The Shit!’ and Some ‘Shitty’ Stuff

The All Hallows’ Eve holiday, commonly known by many as Halloween, is one that leaves most people with both amazing and terrifying memories. The holiday is associated with numerous activities like sharing (often of candies), games such as bobbing for apples, haunted hay rides, cemetery tours as well as pulling spooky but harmless pranks. 

This year’s Halloween has seen numerous events take place – both amazing and one or two shitty. Here’s the notable Halloween events that were trendy in 2019.

1. The 3,000 Jack-o’-lanterns in West Virginia 

People often curve a hollowed-out pumpkin lantern during the Halloween. However, Ric Griffith of West Virginia displays 3,000 of these carved pumpkins every Halloween. While this sounds like an insane culture, it has become an integral part of his neighbor as well as the country at large.  

The Griffith’s insanely beautiful culture, when experienced rather than thought of, started as a mere act of Halloween of carving two or three pumpkins. This number kept on increasing until they decided to do 3,000 pumpkins – its three zeros no typo

The whole thing started as a family affair and has now grown into a culture in the neighborhood. Volunteers often storm into Griffith’s homestead to help carve the pumpkins. Local schools have also established their position in the occasion by donating some of the carved pumpkins. Even more to it is that this culture has gained national recognition with about 30,000 people flocking into the homestead to be part of the satisfying and ‘glorious’ moment amidst the spooky events of Halloween.

2. Halloween Costumes for Kids with Disabilities

There are many trending issues pertaining to inclusion. A good example is the fight for more positions, recognition and so on such as in the political and corporate sectors. While these are essential initiatives, people need to consider the fact that inclusion could as well mean the little things we do on the ground level.

This might be the one thing that Target, a general merchandise retailer, may have sought to achieve. For a long time, there have been no ready-made costumes customized for kids who use wheelchairs. This makes it hard for these kids to shop for Halloween costumes with most resorting to the rather time-consuming option of handmade costumes. 

This year, Target made some costume selection for kids with disabilities. These costumes were meant to give kids with disabilities a rest from the exhausting experiences of finding Halloween costumes they had in the past years. What an amazing way to have kids with disabilities enjoy the spooky holiday?

3. The 2-Year Old Halloween Costume Designer

In no way could this article end without including the story of a 2-year old boy who stunned everyone with his out-of-the-world level of creativity

While most kids long to dress up as superheroes, Bien’s son, whom we will refer as Y, wanted something else – a completely unimagined costume. When asked what costume he wanted for Halloween, Y amazed his parents with a decisive answer “Pants”. Who would ever choose pants anyway? Especially for a kid?

Well, this young champ knew exactly what he wanted; which doesn’t feel like most of us out here, but we are managing fine presumably. To add to this, he had similar plans for his parents. His father was to be ‘a purple hat’ while his mother ‘a big shirt’. While these costume ideas sound unimaginable and weird, they just happened to have the one thing previous Halloween costumes lacked – creativity.
