One of my favorite holidays evil grin The history of this pagan holiday is pretty interesting. In the US even some religious institutions don't have Halloween Parties for the kids. But Harvest or Fall Festivals, etc. And No scary costumes allowed. frown

That is a very scary development!

Best depiction of a proper Halloween, the way it was done in the good old days, is Judy Garland's Meet Me In St. Louis!

I've got a Samhain album spinning right now to get in the festive mood!

I was thinking of going into the office today to see if anyone was in costume, but I'm afraid most of my colleagues will have chosen the same costume as me: Middle-Aged American Business Person (Non-Sexy Version). (N.B.: There is no sexy version.)

So I'll just work from home, as the saying is.

I work in tech, so showing up in a coat and tie is wearing a costume. It also stokes real fear:
"Are you interviewing?!?!"

I still think that some of the creepiest costumes ever are the homemade ones in vintage photos.

I guess that, without all the superhero and characters from movies and comic books, things tended to look creepier … and more true to the "spirit" of the holiday, which was to scare and creepify the crap out of people and give them lasting nightmares. :)
