I scrolled through my Facebook News Feed early this morning and came upon an “on this day” photo of my oldest in this adorable little pumpkin shirt. The shocking thing? According to Facebook, that picture was taken seven years ago. How on earth was that seven years ago? This, of course, spurred on the search through Halloween’s past. My have we grown! So take a look back with us and while you’re at it, share with us your past Halloween photos!
Hold on, man. We don’t go anywhere with “scary,” “spooky,” “haunted,” or “forbidden” in the title. ~From Scooby-Doo
I don’t know that there are real ghosts and goblins, but there are always more trick-or-treaters than neighborhood kids. ~Robert Brault
Charlie Brown is the one person I identify with. C.B. is such a loser. He wasn’t even the star of his own Halloween special. ~Chris Rock
There is nothing funny about Halloween. This sarcastic festival reflects, rather, an infernal demand for revenge by children on the adult world…. There is nothing more unhealthy than this childish sorcery, behind all the dressing up and the presents… ~Jean Baudrillard (1929–2007), Amérique, 1986, translated by Chris Turner (America, 1988)
Clothes make a statement. Costumes tell a story. ~Mason Cooley
