Book Character Day, AKA Halloween

Another way out of date post. Due to the various politically correct and religious issues surrounding Halloween, my school celebrates it as an SCA spirit day: Book Character Day. The kids can dress up as book characters which leaves them a lot of options. These days any movie or TV show worth its salt has books to go with it. As a result, we mostly see kids in store-bought costumes, which is just fine. Teachers however, have a great time with this day. I think the majority of these are very obvious, but just in case...

What a fantastic idea! I would have so much fun building a costume for that.

Clearly I need to figure out how to make that happen at our school. Or maybe I'll just come visit you all next Halloween. :)

That is a really good idea! I work at a bookstore and kids usually come to our store to do trick or treating. The people who were assigned to give away candies dressed up as thing 1 & 2 from dr. Seuss. Having book characters to dress up and calling holloween as a spirit day is a wonderful idea! thanks for sharing...
