My parents love seeing the neighborhood kids dressed up as princesses and Ninja Turtles and my husband was known to incorporate sound effects into the giddy, ghostly scenes he created on his front lawn. To the best of my knowledge, as an adult, I’ve never been to a Halloween party where you dress up in costume.
