Why Do We Wear Costumes on Halloween?

  Why Do We Wear Costumes on Halloween? Much like Halloween itself, the practice of dressing up in costumes is the result of a hodgepodge of traditions from around the world. Many historians suspect that the tradition has some basis in the Celtic festival of Samhain (also called Calan Gaeaf in Wales).

"It really was just a question of legality and contacting property owners, the appropriate owners, and making sure that permission to go on-site is sent out and gone through the proper chain of command and RCMP is notified, by-law is notified."

Tenants of Moncton's so-called "tent city" on Albert Street had to find somewhere else to stay after the eviction notice in late September.
