Early 80's MJ or early 90's MJ? It makes a difference.

Samhain was never about costumes other than trying to look like the dead , so the spirits wouldnt harass you on Samhain
the complete bastardisation of Samhain by christianity and then by american tradition into a holiday where girls dress like sluts of every profession and men dress in super hero costumes , or everyone dresses as memes!
no tradition there at all !
To commemorate the event, Druids built huge sacred bonfires, where the people gathered to burn crops and animals as sacrifices to the Celtic deities. During the celebration, the Celts wore costumes, typically consisting of animal heads and skins, and attempted to tell each other’s fortunes.
