Halloween is just around the corner and we know that lots of you are having parties because our animal onesies have been flying out the door – especially the owl costume, so here are some Halloween fun ideas. This time last year we looked at the history of Halloween. This year there seems to be an added twist with evil clowns becoming the latest anti-social phenomenon to hit our streets. Some States have reported a clown problem with Kemper County, Mississippi being just one of several areas to pass an ordinance making it illegal for people to wear clown makeup, costumes and masks. Retailer Target has been removing clown masks from its shelves just weeks before Halloween. “We had a few masks in stores, which we began to pull last week,” a media representative of Target told ABC News. In Canada the rise of offensive costumes has led some institutions to issue guidance on what is acceptable. The student union at Brock University in Ontario, recently prepared a list of prohibited costumes for students at its Halloween event. The list features any form of headdress, costumes that mock suicide or rape, those depicting transgender activist Caitlyn Jenner, or outfits featuring a culture’s traditional attire.
