Most Wanted Childrens Halloween Costumes
What's Hot for Halloween
Children love Halloween, they love dressing up as ghosts and witches and trying to scare the pants out of everyone they meet and as a parent of three, I should get an Oscar nomination for my acting, I have got the terrified look down pat not just for pretending to my own kids that I am scared but all of the children in my neighborhood must think that I am a complete and utter wimp.
I love Halloween, it brings out the best in people and I have a lot of fun with my Children and their friends even though they all think I am a scaredy cat.
Children love trick or treating and dressing up for the occasion and this year will be no exception, Television and film have a major influence on the costumes that children want to wear and that is reflected again this year as Television Characters are prominent on the list of best selling costumes this year.
