So what did you wear this past All-Hallows-Even? Oh my, I am sorry! that is the question I should have made in 1556, but today i would have to ask "What did you wear this Halloween?"
The art of dressing the children in disguises or customes is called guising, and the first records about this we find it as early as 1895 in Scotland. The first record of this tradition in the U.S.A is in early 20th century, and the first mass-produced halloween customes appeared in stores in the 1930s.
Traditionally, Halloween costumes feature scary characters like monsters, witches and devils; also can be ghosts, skeletons, fictional characters, celebrities, even presidents! Of course, little children usually try dressing as either princes or princesses.
It is interesting that Disney compiled a list of the most frequent halloween customes in their parks, and here's the discovery:
- Princess Aurora
- Minnie Mouse
- Cars 2 Characters
- Jack Sparrow
- Buzz Lightyear
Now dressing up is all done :(
But Christmas is right around the corner :)
