Here's another clever costume:
Halloween seems to have had a resurgence in popularity over the years especially with adults in arrested development.
I have always loved Halloween and thought it a unique American experiment. We know that fundamentalist Protestants detest the popery of it all though especially Catholic worship of the cult of the saints. They think we are a cult.
However, several years ago I was in Rome on All Hallows Eve, Halloween for the vulgar, and there were Italian children trick or treating. How cool and ghoulish is that!
In Augusta, the Alleluia Community does not allow their children to wear horror costumes, but rather they are to dress up as saints and martyrs. Part of their rationale is that we as Catholics should not dabble in the occult aspects of the secular observance of All Hallows Eve, Halloween for you vulgar.
What do you think? Should Catholic children and their arrested in development parents and older adults dress as saints or goblins?
