Nothing ruins Halloween like rain. Trick or treating becomes a major hassle. It’s just a downer. We need the rain in California, but still, couldn’t it have started tomorrow? Who is running this thing?
It’s also bummer when you dress up and 95% of your company doesn’t participate. Like it’s some sort of ridiculous thing.
Halloween is the perfect excuse to let loose; to be creative; to throw caution to the wind and be silly. To tap into your inner child. Fear is the enemy. Fear of being embarrassed. It’s healthy, creative and productive to change it up at least once a year.
The first years at Marketo, I was the only one who dressed up. That sucked, but I took one for the team. Now, at least a few people get in the spirit. How can it become a higher percentage though? Maybe we should have costumes here pre-ordered and people could just pick one out and give it back at the end of the day.
Did you dress up today?
Help me turn that frown upside-down. Send me a picture of you in your costume. Put a link in the comments.
P.S. I have a new costume every year. This year, I am an Elf. Under my jacket, however, is a t-shirt of the Grinch. Don’t tell Santa!
