HOWL-oween {then & now}

The countdown to Halloween begins as we round out the second week of October.
 All Hallows' Eve began with the Celtic tradition of lighting bonfires and dressing in costumes to ward off any unwanted spirits on the last night of October. During the 700's the holiday was adapted further by Pope Gregory III who assigned November 1st as All Saints Day, honoring saints and martyrs. All Hallows Eve continued to mark the superstitious prelude, encouraging all to participate by donning costumes. Halloween has evolved into a secular holiday celebrated in fun by many world-wide.
This year in America, it is estimated that 15% of people dressing up for Halloween will also dress their pets.
Here's a few matching costumes I found to inspire your own creativity.
I will be making my own costume, as many are also expected to do in an effort to save money this
Halloween. Feel free to contact for ideas, how-tos or custom-made, up-cylced designs for yourself :)
