Blake’s Halloween Fun Fact #2

FACT: The tradition of wearing costumes on Halloween is European in origin. It was believed centuries ago that, on All Hallow’s Eve, spirits roamed the Earth seeking the living. People would wear costumes in order to trick malevolent ghosts into believing they were spirits too, and pass them by.

Modern costumes seem to follow the opposite logic, as no human being would ever be caught dead wearing something like this:

"Sexy" Bert and Ernie

Seriously, who the HELL thought this would be a good idea?
