It’s the third Tuesday of sharing my Trick or Treat All Hallow’s Eve ideas. When it comes to Autumn, I have more ideas than any other time of year. Fall is my favorite time of year and Halloween is my favorite holiday. I used to feel bad about saying that since I felt obligated to say Christmas was my favorite, but it’s true so I own it in my ‘older’ age.
Today I’m sharing Halloween costumes through the centuries. I remember my Chinese Princess costume circa 1973.
Through the years costumes have been made from many materials, it was all how much you could afford, wanted to spend & really how creative you could be. That is still true today. One quick search on Pinterest & you’ve got a bazillion Halloween costume ideas. Here’s a walk through Halloween history & how much fun people were having:

What are your favorite Halloween memories? What was your favorite costume? I remember when our son had friends over one year we did a scary theme with spooky music outside, faux blood dripped on their masks & clothes & Junk Hunk Hubby took the chain off a chain saw so they could scare the bejeebies out of some trick or treaters. Innocent fun, right?!
Happy All Hallow’s Eve Junkers!
