The Halloween Hangover

With every consumer tradition there comes the risk of excess. Halloween is probably the quintessential culprit when it comes to “too much of a good thing”.

I know I am sitting with a bowl full of leftover Nerds and Laffty Taffy:  afraid of my lack of will power and what will happen when the sugar shock sets in.

I decided to get some ethnographic inspiration to prevent myself from going down that hole.
What I found was a veritable Candy Land of “day after Halloween” content.  From hyperactive children overdosing on candy to drag queens giving shopping tips.

So, I thought I would share some of my favorite post-Halloween themed videos:
