Carving pumpkins, sipping cider, and trick-or-treating may be part of your Halloween ritual, but nothing gets us into the spirit more than Halloween costumes! 

"For centuries, people have celebrated Halloween with costumes that covered the gamut from spooky to sweet." Is part of the descriptions for this YouTube video from, which revisits Halloween costumes one decade at a time, and ends with a 2015 costume.

So gather up the kids, mom and and dad, and, well...maybe even grandma and gramps, as you settle in for three minutes of Halloween costumes through the decades. 

After seeing some of these you may get some ideas for costumes that you can throw together, or maybe buy, for this year's event. So put the black cat in the back room, grab your bowl of candy corn, and enjoy the show!
