Jeff Passan loves Halloween, but that’s not the case with every Atlanta Braves writer
Jeff Passan lives for October and one Atlanta Braves writer doesn’t care for Halloween.
Scott Coleman of Talking Chop tweeted out other blasphemy saying Halloween is the most overrated holiday. He says he tweets it out annually and Passan as not going to have it. Halloween is without question a top-three holiday and anybody who has ever been a human child before knows this. Dressing up and eating candy doesn’t mean putting on pants and going to the dentist.
Atlanta Braves baseball shouldn’t ruin one of the best parts of October
It’s understandable if some in Braves Country aren’t fans of October anymore. Since 1991, this NL franchise has delivered more heartache than any organization ever should. With more division titles than any team in baseball, all that has translated to is five trips to the World Series in the 1990s and the one 1995 World Series Championship to show for it. It’s Choketober for a reason.
But to have that bleed into ruining your Halloween experience is stupid. The Braves are usually eliminated for the postseason WEEKS before Halloween. This year was different, but it was also 2020. As a human being who dressed up as a Braves fan for three straight years, I believe you can enjoy Braves baseball and Halloween at the same time. I wouldn’t have it any other way.
Candy is better than food, and everybody knows it. Whether you devour Reese’s Peanut Butter Cups, M&M’s or Snickers, that is a choice you should be proud of. While not everyone likes Thanksgiving or Christmas because they may not like their families, Halloween is about having fun, being a little mischievous and eating enough chocolate to make your face break out badly.
It is sacrilegious debase the great international holiday institution known as Halloween.
