I am glade that this only comes once a year. It does give the kiddos a time to dress up and act like something that they are not. We had several spooks and goblins, some little mice, and fairy tale princesses, but my two favorite was of course the grand kids. The oldest one lost his head and it took me a little b it to figure out who he was under that outfit. The youngest one well lets say he was a little wrapped up and he had to show Maw maw and Poppy how a mummy walks.
