A Nordie Hallows Eve

Spandex and glitter and gummies?! Oh My.

I’m not totally caught up on the history of Halloween, but I’m pretty sure that it was invented for Nordies. If you think about it, trick-or-treating just isn’t all that different from visiting Birkie Feed stations, and, while I’m all about that healthful endurance life, some see it as a great excuse to party before we hunker down for the season.

As a result, I see in the world’s classic holiday costumes more than just sexism, poor humor and cultural appropriation, but a great chance to get our Nordie on. See for yourself:

Global Warming: 

Is it hot in here? Or is it just me?
