Dressing up isn't just for Halloween! Just about every holiday can be improved with the addition of a few great costumes.
Ideas for Holiday Costumes
Most of us are familiar with costumes such as Santa, Mrs. Claus and even the elves or theGrinch, but the fact is there are a lot of other holidays that you can dress up for. What about trying a bunny costume for Easter? Or Purim costumes to celebrate that famous joyful Jewish holiday?
Interpreted a little more liberally, a holiday costume can be as simple as wearing green on St. Patrick's Day, red on Valentine's Day or beads on Mardi Gras. Or you can go all out with a pilgrim costume perfect for a school play around Thanksgiving.
Holiday costumes can be quite expensive, especially for the professional-quality costumes worn by department store Santas and Easter bunnies. For many holidays there are lower-cost options available, or you can make your own holiday costume just by starting with a sweat suit of the right color for the holiday in question.
Start Your Own Holiday Tradition
While holiday costumes are often associated with malls, churches and big town events, it can be fun to dress up for a holiday just for a family or company party rather than for a huge to-do. Putting on a Santa hat or donning a Mardi Gras mask makes the whole day more fun and gives everyone a bit more holiday spirit, no matter what the holiday.
Get creative and have a good time coming up with your own holiday costumes for every holiday under the sun. You'll be the life of the party, even when there isn't a party.
