Creepmas - Doing to Christmas What it Does to Halloween...
Right, so anyone who was even remotely near any sort of store this Halloween, and every other Halloween before that, (just not as bad as what I witnessed this Halloween) will notice that at the same time that every store is advertising and selling Halloween stuff...usually, in the same isle, just on the opposide side, they are selling bloody Christmas stuff as well! Now I know that in places such as the States where they are bonkers for pretty much any 'holiday' but especially Halloween and Christmas, this has probably been the norm for as long as people have been eating Pumpkin Pie every Thanksgiving (okay slight exaggeration...but only slight!). This really bugs me though, we should at least be letting Halloween be over before we start thinking about Christmas decorations, and costumes! This is why when I heard about Creepmas, I fully embraced the concept! Creepmas is about doing to Christmas, what it does to Halloween...stomping a nice big Sandy Claws sized boot into the celebrations.
And speaking of Sandy Claws, what better way to celebrate Creepmas than with one of my all time most favourite, most watched and most quoted films...The Nightmare Before Christmas! Just like Jack Skellington takes over Christmas with his wonderful Halloween spirit, even though he tried his damn hardest to make it as Christmassy as possible, Creepmas is infiltrating all the snowflakes and candy canes with a good old dosage of blood and bats and ghouls galore! The 13 Days of Creepmas runs for 13 days between the 1st and 13th December. Check out the Official blog for how to partake in all the creep~tastic celebrations! <3
