My elementary school did Halloween up really big and everyone dressed up for the day and nothing was learned. Sadly no pictures were taken, so all I have are the great memories. To help myself remember though, I like to browse old photos of Halloween’s past and see what costumes people were wearing back then. This photo is from 1981 and features a Princess, which was a pretty popular choice in my school if memory serves me right (and this was before the Disney Princesses craze).
If you look in the foreground there is an amazing store-bought Frankenstein Monster and behind him some sort of demon in a shawl or something that kind of creeps me out.
