Happy Halloween! In the spirit of the holiday I decided to blog today about why Halloween should be a favorite holiday of the unemployed. I love creative costumes and that is why I love the holiday, but there are an assortment of reasons why anyone who is unemployed should love it as well.
- FREE Candy
- Cheap DIY Costumes
- Seasonal employment (yes I will dress like a zombie and get paid to “work” a party!)
- FREE Candy (so great it should definitely be on this list twice)
This year there is another reason why I am loving this holiday so much. Today, on Oct. 31, the Occupy Wall St. Movement is becoming Occupy Halloween.
This sign is not a joke. It is the slogan on the website promoting the “movement.” They are asking people to dress up as superheroes and take on the “Corporate evil villains.” I may be alone in this, but I think that might be one of the funniest things I have seen in regards to Halloween.
I am also loving all of the ridiculous costumes based on the Occupy movement.
