What to Wear?
Year 'round I wear
crucified Jesus about my neck
but come All Hallow's Eve
I might be Lazarus wound in white gauze,
Padre Pio, black eyed, palms stigamta'd,
St Sebastian, body plundered with arrows,
St Agatha, bloody breasts on a plate.
Wisely avoid "sexy" Mother Teresa,
... Some things are just too horrifying.

Hallow means Saint. Who says Catholics can't do guts and gore with the best of them. When my kids were young, I did dress them as saints a few times (not the blood and gore I noted above, but perhaps I should have!)
Googling costume ideas for this year, I saw a Mother Teresa with a short, tight dress with lots of cleavage. I would be so afraid lightening would strike me! Ha.
We had fun this year. My youngest was Dracula, and my oldest a skeleton in NYC.
