THERE ARE TWO TYPES OF PEOPLE ON HALLOWEEN…

Halloween is the only time you will see people covered from head to toe in blood and you won’t automatically think they must be rushed to A&E. Well… Hopefully! Halloween is known to be like marmite; you either love it or hate it. So here are a few versions of the two types of people you will find out and about (or not!) on Halloween:

1. The Die-hard Halloween fan VS. “It is just October 31st”.

For some it is the most important day on the year… bigger than Christmas!

2. Costume fanatics VS Costume pacifist

The former will have planned for months; they will have done make up test runs, found the right shade of pale, and made sure their costume is 100% on point. The latter will get a bit of loo roll and call themselves a mummy.

3. “Can you smother any more fake blood on your body?” VS “Ew that will stain my skin, no thanks.”

ELEANOR HALLOWEEN 2

Those who love fake blood and will look like they have committed a miniature massacre. They will have so much fake blood on, even with frantic scrubbing, it won’t come off their skin for at least two weeks. I love fake blood so much that in first year I somehow managed to get it on our kitchen ceiling (don’t worry we got our deposit back!). Those who hate it won’t even stand in the same room as you whilst you put it on, and will look smug as they walk alongside you to uni the next day looking squeaky clean.

4. Those who will raid Tesco for sweets for Trick or Treaters VS those will shut the curtains and lock the door.

I must admit I am the latter, I am the Grinch when it comes to Trick or Treaters, I would much prefer to eat the sweets than give them away!

5. Those who will have marathon of scary films VS those who will watch ‘Shaun of the dead’ and get scared.

SCARY FILM

The scary film lovers will have the lights off and will egg each other on to watch spine tingling, goose bump-raising films. The wimps will have all the lights on in the house and will be surrounded by pillows. In fact they will probably get into the first 5 minutes of a ‘scary’ film and decide to watch a comedy instead – I am speaking from experience here!

6. Girls who dress in next to nothing VS those who don’t care and go all out.

ELEANOR HALLOWEEN 5

In the words of Lindsey Lohan in Mean Girls “In girl world, Halloween is the one night a year   when a girl can dress like a total slut and no other girls can say anything about it.” But where is the fun in that?! Halloween is all about the seriously scary!

7. To pump or not to pump.

ELEANOR HALLOWEEN 6

Those who all of a sudden become the Picasso of pumpkin carving and create masterpieces. And those who have to go to A&E because they have sliced their fingers.

8. The superstitious VS who will carry on as normal.

ELEANOR HALLOWEEN 7

The superstitious will hopscotch their way along the street, as they don’t want to step on any cracks in case they break their mother’s back. The others will walk in a straight line as normal.

9. Those who go decoration mad VS those who won’t see the point.

ELEANOR HALLOWEEN 8

The best decorated house will scare off even bravest of Trick or Treaters.

10. Edgy costumes VS traditional

 DAY OF THE DEAD

Those will like to be a bit funkier and less-mainstream so will most likely decorate themselves as something for the day of the dead. And those will dust off their old witch’s costume.

 

Which of these do you fit into during Halloween?
