Happy Halloween from Distinctive
Dressing in costumes has its roots in the Pagan Celtic roots of Samhain. One theory is they dressed as ghouls to fool evil spirits let loose on October 31, so they would not be possessed by these spirits. Another theory is they dressed in costume just for fun, and to make mischief.
After the Catholic Church replaced Samhain with All Saints Day, people would dress as dead Saints and devils for their festivities. Annually, Pam holds a costume party for the office, and it is always a blast! Happy Halloween!
