All about Halloween costumes and pumpkins

Updated on September 6, 2013

All Hallows Eve traditions and celebrations

You know it's here by the pumpkins overflowing the produce bins and the racks and sacks of store-bought costumes lining the aisles. But even more, you know Halloween is around the corner because bagged candy and packages of candy-apple caramel tempt you at the neighborhood stores and on TV. You know that Halloween, that fun-filled, trick-or-treat holiday, has come to town.

Do you celebrate the Great Pumpkin holiday? Is playing dress-up part of your tradition? Trick or treating was always fun and a few of my costumes. Two are actually real clothes that we brought back from Germany. My family spent a number of years living in Germany when I was a child. I still remember the German folk dress that I wore trick-or-treating for a couple of years. But when I first came home I would wear my German lederhosen. My dad and I both had these leather short pants, and I remember that I wore them a lot in Germany. I also remember my lederhosen white carved ivory eidleweiss flower as part of the trim.

    No. I don't care to put on a costume.

      Are homemade Halloween costumes still popular?

      Putting on Halloween costumes is a favorite way to celebrate Halloween by many people around the world. Today Halloween costumes are available everywhere from the grocery stores to online shops. It's easy to find a costume, perhaps too easy. Back in the old days when I was a kid we had limited choices and maybe we were better off for it. Instead of buying an outfit off the rack, we had to concoct a costume straight out of our imagination. In fact, that was part of the whole holiday fun.
