Spooky Hymns & Spooky Costumes
October 17, 2011
In regards to my recent post about odd holiday traditions, I apparently meant “birdshot”, not “buckshot”. I still maintain that neither is normal to find in Thanksgiving food.
Now that we’ve cleared that up…on to a spooky post.
Have you heard the hymn “They’ll Know We Are Christians/We Are One in the Spirit“?
I heard it for the first time recently.
It’s very creepy. Creepy enough that I publicly claim it as my theme song if I am ever put in charge of organizing a religious human sacrifice. (I don’t foresee this being a possibility, obviously due to my lack of credentials in the area, but stranger things have happened.)
Just listen to it and tell me you don’t envision naked people dancing around a fire during their Christian cult gathering. If you still don’t think it’s creepy, try this version. An organ can make anything sound scary.
Did you sing hymns as a child that seemed perfectly normal that now creep you out as an adult?
I’ve never really been a Halloweener. (Did I just call myself a weiner? Oops.) Most of the time it’s a holiday for normally dressed girls to get super skanked up. It’s sort of like prom. Girls who never wore short skirts or low-cut shirts all the sudden show up in dresses they had to be melted down and poured into.
I do love the candy aspect. A whole holiday centered around getting tooth-decaying amounts of candy? I’ll take it.
I’ll also take the infant costumes that come with the territory. Since I have my own real-life baby doll to dress up this year, I can’t help but be enamored with tiny costumes.
They’re so funny, but so creepy at the same time. See for yourself…
