Happy Halloween!

I was going to do a post about the history and etymology of Halloween and Samhain (snore, right?), but because I have sinusitis and I feel like I have a pumpkin for a head, I thought I'd blog about Halloween costumes and pic spam you instead.

First let me say, I LOVE Halloween.  Love, love, love!  The time of year (minus the allergies, thx), the color of the trees, the cooler weather, the candy, the crazy decorations, the mystical feel, the candy.  It all adds up to make Halloween my favorite holiday (unless it's December and then Christmas is my favorite :)).  The best part of October 31st? Costumes!  It probably comes as no surprise that I love to play dress up. Here's a rundown of who I've been over the last few years
This costume was b.a.  Did the full makeup and everything.
Everyone at work was a character from Oz.  I still have my ruby slippers!
Did this in a pinch & every kid knew exactly who I was.
Wingardium Leviosa!

And who I'd like to dress up as in the future:

They don't get more dramatic than Lucretia.  <3 her!

I'll run around saying "Fiddle dee dee" and "I'll think about that tomorrow."

Does anyone else detect the underlying theme here? Because I just noticed.  Maybe our Halloween character choices tell us something about ourselves.  What about you?  Who have you been for All Hallow's?  WHAT have you been?  Share, share!

Last year I was a fairy princess. This year...drum roll please...I'm planning to dress as Tinker Bell. So, according to your theory, I see myself as a magical being who flits around through the woods sprinkling glitter on people. Yeah, that's pretty accurate. LOL Even though this year, my little monkey who will be dressed as Captain Hook chose my ensemble. I love Halloween! Good times playing dress up and CANDY!

You are such a fairy princess and I am so the evil queen ... except not that evil yet with an equally fabulous cape!
