- the economy
- the weather
- new housing built in the area
- word of mouth advertising of the quality of hand outs in the area
Of these, I think the weather had the largest impact. This is the first year that it has not rained or been so cold that you couldn't see the costumes due to jackets, scarves, and gloves.
There was a huge variety in costumes, from your typical fairies and angels...
to Greek Goddesses. Can you name this Greek Goddess? If so, let Lady Macbeth know and she has a special stamp for you :)
I hope your Halloween was as much fun as ours!
