As you get older, Halloween starts to abandon its scary and frightening roots and morphs into date night. When did this happen and why has this become a big thing? Can’t we just go back to the days of throwing toilet paper on trees and getting as much candy as possible? Those were the days.
It’s kind of silly when you think about it. Halloween is basically a beauty pageant. Once you walk in the door, people are going to judge you and judge you hard. If you’re wearing a lame costume, you’re a sitting duck for gossip. “Hey, did you see what John and Mary are wearing? Maybe they should try a little harder next year because it’s not funny.” God forbid that you wear the same costume as someone else. There can’t be two Donald Trumps at the same party or you’ll look like a fool. This might sound silly, but I’ve witnessed it firsthand and I would bet my life savings (don’t expect a lot of money) that you have, too.
Whether you like it or not, if you have a significant other, you have to wear a matching costume. Those are the rules. You can try to be a rebel and wear two separate costumes, but good luck convincing your girlfriend or boyfriend to do that. It’s not gonna happen. That being said, give into peer pressure and wear a couples costume. You’ll thank me later. Need some ideas? Here’s a list of some the top couples costumes for Halloween 2016.
