Scary Good Halloween Deals

Posted by By Eric G. Stark on

Boo-tackular Halloween Deals

All Hallows Eve - better known as Halloween - is fast approaching. 

So watch for clown and Wonder Woman costumes - and that's the adult outfits. 

According to Bestproducts.com the top selling Halloween costumes this year are Pennywise, the clown from the Stephen King book and movie "It."

Wonder Woman, the pumpkin suit from the "Saturday Night Live" pumpkin skit, inflatable chub suit, Baywatch costume and Belle from "Beauty and the Beast" round out the top six outfits.

Here is a complete list of top trending costumes

I wasn't scared by "It," but with Halloween soon here, I began thinking about my top 5 Halloween movies of all-time. 

My top 2 have the "scare factor."  1. "Halloween II" The original Halloween came out in 1978. I saw the second one first in 1981 and was freaked out by Michael Myers' slow, deliberate walk through the hospital.

2. "The Shinning" - "redrum," "redrum" (murder spelled backwards) - is an intense thriller from 1980. Saw it in Classic Video Club as a sophomore in high school. What was the teacher thinking?

3. " Young Frankenstein," a 1974 comedy, is one of my wife's favorite movies.

4.  " Ghostbusters," from 1984 is funny and has a catchy song - Who you gonna call?

5. "The Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown"- a 1966 Halloween classic - has to make the list (or my wife would kill me). 

Honorable mention: movies include my co-worker Jose Lopez picking "Friday the 13th" and Ken McCombs III says  "Nightmare on Elm Street "is his favorite. Fellow co-worker Steve Wentz picked "The Ring."

The Shinning

According  History.com, the celebration of Halloween was extremely limited in colonial New England because of the rigid Protestant belief systems there. Halloween was much more common in Maryland and the southern colonies.

In the second half of the nineteenth century, America was flooded with new immigrants. These new immigrants, especially the millions of Irish fleeing the Irish potato famine, helped to popularize the celebration of Halloween nationally.

TRICK OR TREAT

Borrowing from Irish and English traditions, Americans began to dress up in costumes and go house to house asking for food or money, a practice that eventually became today’s “trick-or-treat” tradition. Young women believed that on Halloween they could divine the name or appearance of their future husband by doing tricks with yarn, apple parings or mirrors.

In the late 1800s, there was a move in America to mold Halloween into a holiday more about community and neighborly get-togethers than about ghosts, pranks and witchcraft. At the turn of the century, Halloween parties for both children and adults became the most common way to celebrate the day.
