The American Halloween is just one of many celebrations around the globe with roots in ceremonies to honor the dead who've returned to visit their loved-ones. Want to join the Hungry Ghosts Festival or snack on a sugar skull?
If anything can bring out the kid in an adult, it's Halloween. For fans of the holiday, the dressing-up experience is made even sweeter (and cuter) once a child enters the picture, thanks to coordinating mommy-and-me costumes.
In the rush to come up with a creative and inexpensive Halloween costume idea in a hurry, don't make the mistake of confusing unique for tasteless or timely for tacky. It can be hard to draw the line between a costume that's clever and one that's inappropriate.
