I’m thinking that Halloween might be more than a fun dress-up holiday. It’s a time when we can let loose with our inner freak or our inner angel. When, in the guise of a Halloween costume, we can let ourselves really be free, free to express any part of ourselves we like.
I’m thinking of the friend who loved dressing like a woman for Halloween back in the day, and later came out as a cross dresser.
I’m thinking of the kid who loved to be a super-hero on Oct. 31 and grew up to save lives in real ways.
And I’m thinking of the little girls who love being fairy princesses, me included, and wondering what it all means or if it means anything at all.
So, devil or angel? What was your favorite Halloween costume as a child and if you were to dress up today, what would you be?
