What Happened to Halloween?
We were out this evening and barely saw any people in costume. There was one guy in a pretty good Fat Elvis costume, and then a few people as we got closer to home, but there were lots and lots of people dressed as they'd be any other Saturday night. What's the deal?
Okay, I know tonight isn't really Halloween--Monday is the 31st. But as the Saturday closest to the date, tonight should have been the night with all the parties and festivities. Were we just in the wrong areas? (Although, as it happens, we were both in the suburbs and in a downtown restaurant and club area.) Is Chicago still in such a daze from the White Sox win that we've lost track of time? Will costumed people be out in force tomorrow or Monday night?
Since we didn't see much of anything tonight, I have no idea myself, but what are/were the popular costumes this year? Did any of you dress up for a party?
By the way, enjoy your extra hour of sleep tonight.
