Happy Halloween all you ghouls, goblins and other creatures of the night.
Halloween is a multi-billion dollar business with costumes, especially those for dogs, being a HUGE item. It’s so commercial, everyone vying for the best costume, the most absurd foods (like kitty litter cake, which is actually quite tasty), and bizarre decorations. Universal Studios and other big theme parks go to elaborate extents to make scary ‘stages’ where people pay good money to go and get scared.
But it used to not always be like that. While people now send cards to others during the season, it’s not the BIG thing to do, but once, a long time ago, it was. Take a look at these awesome Halloween cards from the early 1900s. I just love this stuff, don’t you? (all these pics are in the public domain, by the way).
