Halloween decorations are an absolute must for anyone who understands the abstract concept of Halloween as a holiday. Our pets, however, don't actually know what the deal with Halloween is, and so the yearly appearance of strange decorative specters, stuffed scarecrows, and screaming sound effects can cause some dogs and cats to flip out int he most delightful way.

These animals don't even know they're playing with decorations.

In other cases, however, the pets would rather these strange new additions to the house would just go away...

Note to self: carefully close the lid on the Halloween decorations before leaving dogs home alone, because they might mistake it for a new toy box.pic.twitter.com/ooGY9WVUg8 twitter.com

At the end of the day, however, there may be no better decoration that the pet itself! Make this Halloween a real spook-fest with the help of your trusty feline or canine!

As if being a mom isn't hard enough, why does society want to heap on more stress. Women who can breastfeed need to be able to breastfeed. They need to do it whenever and wherever.

This has been a contentious, dramatic issue for generations. Some people just can't handle a boob out in public. A boob that is nourishing a child, I might add. When you're hungry, you don't want to wait, so why should a mom, make her baby wait until a more "appropriate" time?

Generations are sometimes a little confusing. What makes up a generation? Is it their ages or year they were born? Is it what was happening politically during the formative years? Is it the economic landscape that either afforded or denied certain life expectations? Maybe it's the technology that they had access to.

According to the Pew Research Center, it's all of these things and more. All of these factors can influence a generations understanding of the world and ultimately their thoughts as the move through it.

Depending on what generation you're from, you might have seen the drastic shift from records to CDs to Spotify, from payphones and landlines to cellphones.

Marked by technology and pop culture references, the older generations might actually look to Gen Z, the iGen, with pitty for never truly understanding the struggle of walking to school up hill both ways.

What are the struggles of the past that young people today really won't understand unless they were there to experience it? We went to Ask Reddit to find out.
