A line from the Venture Bros. Halloween special has me thinking on the true spirit of Halloween.
Here is that line:
"Halloween is the night we discover who we are. Are we people who make zombie armies? Are we those who condemn others? Or are we beautiful children in resplendent costumes collecting candy? Are our choices in costumes provocative? Do we dress up as our ideal self, or are we not ready to decide what to be? Do you see it now? We use this one enchanted night to perform the greatest feat of magic there is. We become ourselves. Halloween is the true magic. It is the night we discover who we really are."
- Dr. Orpheus, A Very Venture Halloween
Whether or not you agree, I don't care. But I believe this to be true.
Happy Halloween y'all!
