I know summer is over when I see my first Spirit Halloween banner poorly hung over the entrance of an abandoned retail location. I saw my first one last weekend on the way home from New London, CT, so summer is toast.

It's officially time for "The Most CT Halloween Costumes We Could Find"


Yandy is one of my favorite websites and where the female "Outlaw," "Cowgirl" and "Fake news" costumes come from. The rest are from Spirit Halloween.

Halloween is one of my favorite holidays but it's going to be pretty much the worst this year. As holidays go, this one is a COVID-19 nightmare. The whole thing is based on strangers exchanging goods that they put in their mouth.
In case you are new here, doing that is bad, so bad. I don't care what outfit you are wearing there's not a gun in the world that you could hold to my head to get me to eat a "Baby Ruth" from a stranger.
There is only one move this year, buy the outfit, your own candy and stay home for a drunken family house party live streamed on FaceSpace.
