    The biggest downer on Halloween? People who show up “as themselves.” Equally disappointing? Realizing you’ve spent a hefty chunk of cash on an outfit you’ll wear only once.

    We love Halloween because you get to pretend to be someone (or something) else for a night (and we don't mean trading IDs with your BF or breaking out your best British accent to fool a guy).
