Here’s what to do.
Christmas is depressing, Thanksgiving is exhausting, Valentine's Day is like a love letter from your heart telling you to live under a bridge. The only good holiday is Halloween.
So naturally, you are having a Halloween party, because Halloween parties combine all the good things about parties: alcohol, spooky snacks, cobwebs, plastic spiders, the inescapable inevitability of your own gruesome and regrettable death, and people who don't totally look like themselves so you can reasonably pretend that you weren't avoiding someone because "I just didn't recognize you in that hat."
The bad news, though, is that your life is likely filled with ding-dongs who think Halloween is a good time to wear racist costumes. Like this.
