Made in China by people who have no cultural understanding of North American life. Bought in bulk by soulless corporations who are looking to make a profit. Put on Amazon by people who are just doing their job. Common sense removed from the whole business process.
Child’s Pimp Suit Costume (From BOS via Amazon) Comments are funny!
Costumes are big business. The material and craftmanship that goes into your average Halloween costume probably clocks in a 1,00$ or less yet they are sold to the consumer at 20$-40$. Commercial holidays can be fun for kids but eventually the money-making aspect of it becomes just too silly to even care anymore.
My daughter is frustrated with me because I am not all over decorating for Easter. Yesterday I emptied some eggs and we got to painting. She also found a sweet bunny rabbit at the thrift store and we put a bow on it. It looks dandy. Saturday is FREE, there is no ballet and no parental switch-aroo so we have a whole day to make flat eggs from foam and felt.
But deep inside I hope that in my lifetime I see the end of Valentine’s Day, Halloween and commercialized Easter and Christmas and the likes.
