    *Not including this woman's contacts.

    They're jealous of our lockers.

    i’m still jealous of americans having lockers cause you can make them nice inside and actually have somewhere to put stuff instead of carrying everything around all day. stupid british high schools

    They're jealous of the fortune cookies we get with takeout Chinese food.

    And they're jealous of our voting stickers.

    I'll always be jealous of Americans for getting a sticker when they vote

    Because nothing gets Americans to fulfill their civic duty more than free shit!

    But there's one thing that truly gets non-Americans really going, and it's a seasonal American thing.

    Every year around the end of August, a seasonal shop pops up in our abandoned big box shops, and people lose their minds.

    People all over the world want Americans to know how lucky they are to have the big box Halloween behemoth.

    Americans really don’t realise how lucky they are to have Spirit Halloween🎃😭

    Like, they're VIOLENTLY jealous.

    It’s getting to that time of year again where I become VIOLENTLY jealous of all americans who can go to Spirit Halloween

    It's truly one of the biggest reasons people are envious of Americans.

    the only reason why i envy americans is because y'all have spirit halloween like??? we only get a small section in stores that consists of the same devil horns, dracula capes, scream masks and witch hats😭

    You see, most countries don't have humongous stores dedicated to Halloween.

    I get so jealous seeing what Americans can get from Spirit Halloween. The best I can get is a plastic pumpkin bucket from Poundland 😓

    Twitter: @kerryaartwork

    The reactions are all over the place...

    "I'd spend literally all of my money there."

    i’m so jealous americans have that spirit halloween shop mate i’d spend literally all of my money there

    Twitter: @miffyfollows

    "I hope Americans don't ever take Spirit Halloween for granted...you don't know how lucky you are!"

    I hope Americans don’t ever take spirit Halloween for granted...you don’t know how lucky you are!

    "I am going to cry."

    If I see one more spirit halloween tik tok I am going to cry. I can't believe Americans have entire shops dedicated to Halloween this is so unfair

    This person wanted to come to America just to visit a Spirit Halloween.

    I keep seeing videos of Americans going to spirit halloween and it makes me so mad I might just go to America for a few hours to go there.

    And for some, it's the ONLY reason they're jealous of Americans, period.

    only reason i’ll ever be jealous of americans is because of spirit halloween

    Twitter: @xbl00dw1tchx

    So, Americans, feel lucky, I guess?

    im so jealous of americans for the sole reason yous get to shop at spirit halloween

    Twitter: @dk_ogg

    And appreciate your Spirit Halloween store a little bit more this year (lol). Our friends overseas are truly seething because they don't have it.
