Halloween Top Tens

Peanuts-peanuts-26798627-1024-768October 17, 2014 – In the humble words of Linus van Pelt, Halloween is when “The Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.”

I can’t tell you if it is most sincere, but here is what registers as the most popular costumes, songs and treats for Halloween 2014.
