Three hundred and sixty four days a year identity is a complicated issue. We’re constantly asking ourselves who we are, explaining what we do, and exploring what we want to do and be.
Then, for one glorious day, we throw on a pink bunny costume and voila, we’re a pink bunny. Nevermind that our parents were not pink bunnies, nevermind that we were never very good at the long jump. On Halloween you get to be exactly what and who you want.
Never got your long-awaited letter from Hogwarts? That won’t stop you from throwing on a pair of robes, grabbing a broomstick, and sorting yourself into the house of your choice. Are a can opener and microwave your cooking tools of choice? Doesn’t stop you from putting on a giant white chef’s hat and throwing around terminology you learned from watching cooking shows.
At Rightside, we consider it part of our mission to help people explore, embrace, and proclaim their identity online–whether that identity happens to be as an .ACTOR, .ATTORNEY, BAND, .DEMOCRAT, .DENTIST, .ENGINEER, .LAWYER, .NINJA, .REPUBLICAN, or .VET. So it shouldn’t come as too big a surprise that on Friday, October 30 our employees went all out–decorating their offices and cubicles, coming to work in elaborate costumes, and even dressing up their pets for the occasion.
