Funny Costumes for Kids
Traditionally, Halloween costumes have been a bit scary. Because Halloween probably evolved from the Celtic celebration of the end of the harvest season, called Samhain, supernatural and frightful costumes became the norm. It was thought that on All Hallows Eve, the spirits of the dead were released and would walk the earth one final time. The thought of spirits roaming about was daunting enough but to make matters worse, ancient villagers would dress up in scary costumes to appear dead themselves in an effort to ward off the evil spirits.
Halloween costumes have evolved a great deal over the past few decades. Although the traditional scary costumes are still extremely popular, it has also become customary for other looks to be seen on Halloween. Pop culture has greatly influenced Halloween costumes and on Halloween night you are as likely to see many costumes representing pop culture looks, as you are those that are scary and hideous. Athletes, Presidents, TV or Movie Characters and Celebrities are all trendy costume choices. Another costume genre that has really caught on in recent years is that of the humorous costume.
