i looked for rape statistics on the difference between halloween and the rest of the year, but i couldn't find anything.
therefore, i can not be sure that more people are sexually assaulted on halloween, but i certainly would not be surprised.
i am pretty sure when she put on her outfit, she wasn't expecting anything but a good time. going to a party with some friends.
she gets thirsty.
someone saw her in her cute costume and decided to spike her drink.
she ends up raped, maybe dead.
still worth a night of fun that you will never remember because of all the alcohol?
The origin of Halloween is that it was the one day of the year that the disembodied spirits of all those who had died throughout the preceding year would come back in search of living bodies to possess for the next year.
It was believed to be their only hope for the afterlife.
The Celts believed all laws of space and time were suspended during this time, allowing the spirit world to intermingle with the living.
Naturally, the still-living did not want to be possessed.
So on the night of October 31, villagers would extinguish the fires in their homes, to make them cold and undesirable.
They would then dress up in all manner of ghoulish costumes and noisily paraded around the neighborhood, being as destructive as possible in order to frighten away spirits looking for bodies to possess.
haunted houses are the best!
