Src: Flickr/Pink Sherbet Photography I remember when October 31 used to be this magical time of year after the autumn leaves had fallen, leaving a technicolor, crisp blanket to crunch under our feet as we collected our candy bounty from neighborhood houses. We often slipped on a plastic mask and un-breathable costume to dress up as our favorite cartoon characters, like Spiderman or Tweety bird (yes, I was a repeat offender), Or we’d take it a step further by painting our faces, wearing a black...
