Video of Mums on Halloween in the '80s Versus Today

This Video Comparing '80s and Today's Mums on Halloween Is SO Accurate, I Can't Breathe

1980's Mom Vs 2018 Mom Halloween Edition

I had a blast making this video with my girl Tiffany from Juggling The Jenkins! Which Halloween Mom are you? 1980's or 2018??? Maybe a bit of both? Happy Halloween!

Whether you yourself were an '80s mum or you had an '80s mum, it's clear that there are quite a few differences between those mothers and the ones of today — especially when it comes to Halloween traditions. Today, moms start thinking about Halloween in August, carefully pinning costume and decor ideas to their Pinterest boards. In the '80s, mums thought about Halloween a few days ahead of the holiday, if that, and handed their kids a pillowcase for candy and a roll of toilet paper so they could TP their friends' houses.

In a video posted to Facebook, Meredith Masony of That's Inappropriate plays a mom from 1988 who literally hands her kid a giant kitchen knife to go carve pumpkins down the street, while Tiffany Jenkins of Juggling the Jenkins plays a mum of today, who takes the tiny, itsy-bitsy carving saw and "rollie death machine" (aka the perforated design tool) out of the carving kit so her kids won't get hurt. The juxtaposition between the two mom figures is accurate and so hilarious, it made me choke on my morning coffee. Enjoy!
