It was the day we looked forward to, prepared for, and talked about. We are proud of some, embarrassed by some, and question our parent's judgement on others. We have a collective memory of awards won, best costumes and beloved characters.
Yes, folks, here is a look at OUR Halloween pictures.
I'll go first...
I'm on the left and this is my only Halloween picture from when I was a kid. Apparently, I was scared of all the spooky characters and so my mum made me a monk costume and gave me a big tin foil cross to ward off all the ghosts and devils! My sister was dressed up as a whitch and was wearing a beautiful cape that my mum hand-sewed years before. Big pumpkins were not available, so we carved sweedes. England, 1982
Eric, my husband, dressed up as a ghostbuster. He made the costume himself out of a baseball bat and pipe attached to his backpack. As a kid, he scratched the photo to make it a little more exciting! I love the look on his face - perfect 12 year old fun. California, 1984
