Why have we all of a sudden declared war on the clown?
Instead of fun, happiness and joy; the flower squirting, squeaky nose, character has become the villain.
Not that there is anything wrong with that.
Remember, it is Halloween!
The first memory I have of Halloween, I was dressed as a clown…
Not because it was freaky, scary and hip, but being the youngest, I was the only family member left that fit into the costume my mother sewed on her Singer.
This week Canadian Tire pulled its clown decorations from their stores after one social media mom complained it was horrific (or something like that).
Again, isn’t that the idea behind Halloween?
Am I missing something here?
Are there incidents where clowns are chasing hids with live chainsaws, machetes or even cattle prods?
Are there incidents of near death experiences or nuclear attacks at the hands of a clown in oversized shoes?
Then why are we treating a lifelong tradition as if it were ISIS?
Halloween, as it has for generations, requires safety, rules and parental supervision; and a big pillow case of common sense…
Don’t be scared!!! For 99.9% of all clowns, it’s just pretend…
