I love Halloween and almost everything about it. But sometimes people take Halloween pranks a little to far, especially the creepy clowns that have been showing up nationwide.

First off, I'd like to thank the creepy clowns for leaving Duluth alone, but there has now been sightings in Minnesota.  I've never been scared of clowns, but I have a few friends that are deathly afraid of them. I'm not sure what's causing this phenomenon, but I feel like it's going down a dark scary road.

I just think there's too much fear in this world and the normal person might not know you're just trying to scare people or if your kidnapping intentions are real. I personally feel this creepy clowns thing needs to stop before someone gets hurt.

Apparently these clowns have been trying to lure women and kids into the woods. It's a crazy circus we leave in, but we certainly don't need to to add to it. According to The New York Times, there are 12 people facing charges of making false reports or threats, or chasing people all dressed up in a creepy clown costume. There have been reports of clown sightings in Alabama, New York, Virginia, and most recently, Iowa.

I get the whole wanting to prank people and become YouTube famous, I just feel that this is the wrong way to do it. Causing fear while dressed up as clown can do some serious mental damage to a person. Please let this strange phenomenon end, before something really bad happens.

Also, if you thinking of dressing like a clown for Halloween this year, think twice, because it might make you a target. Have a happy and safe Halloween!
