The Clown Horror of 2016!

The Clown Horror of 2016!

Are you scared of Clowns?

Because I know I am! Even just the sight of them terrifies me. Just people in clown costumes is all they are, But still are scary.

How did the idea even come about in the first place? The first sighting was announced in South Carolina when a woman who saw a man dressed up as a clown in the woods, but then how did it become a worldwide phenomenon? It started spreading through local cities in South Carolina then spread across to North Carolina and then from there it spread across all different states in America such as Mississippi, Florida, Virginia, Pennsylvania. Many more states have had reports on different clown sightings.

Ohio took it to the extreme and some schools were closed there with letters being sent home to parents to let them know why. Then it became a worldwide thing and starting happening worldwide and made it all the way across to the UK where there started being reports of clown sightings. I don’t know even know how by 1 woman reporting a clown sighting near her house has become a worldwide thing? Why did it spread so quickly and how did it become a worldwide thing?

These are questions that no one will be able to really answer. The first report was made between middle of August to the end of August. with Halloween and Bonfire night  being only a 2 Months away it made it even worse. Even though it is starting to die out 2 months later by the time it got to Halloween, it still was a good excuse for a lot of people to be dressed up as clowns. I myself saw at least 5 people in my local area in clown costumes that night and possible scare people too and I wonder what their excuse was… It’s Halloween, people can dress up as clowns if they want. This was a good chance for anyone to dress up as a clown because they knew they could get away with it. But now it has started dying down and people are finally being able to to relax again.

How did you feel about the clowns? Did you hate them as much as me?
