One might assume that because celebrities live in a near-constant state of Halloween, both in their work and in their off-the-clock physical appearances and outward sensibilities, they might bow out of the actual holiday. But they don't! In fact, they bow in more than anybody. Let's take a look at some of this year's best and most ridiculous celebrity Halloween costumes.

Pumpkin carving is a somewhat enjoyable Halloween tradition that follows you from the inescapable family gatherings of youth to to the unbearable pumpkin carving parties of adulthood. Though most of us partake in the yearly activity, some of us go above and beyond. Like whoever did that Beyoncé pumpkin.

Halloween: It's tonight. Glad you're excited—it's gonna be great. Since we're all here and it's Friday, might you stop by Kinja and tell us (or better yet, show us!) what you're wearing for Halloween this year? It'll be fun.

Some Guy's Ninja Costume Shut Down a University

Central Connecticut State University was thrown into a panic yesterday when reports of an armed person on the premises sent the campus into a lockdown. After three hours of worry, it was over: a suspect had been arrested, no weapon was found, and police say there was never a threat in the first place. What gives?

This Is What Happens When You Tell Your Kids You Ate Their Candy

Sarah Hedgecock · 11/05/13 12:08PM

Who doesn't love making kids scream (and maybe cry a little) on Halloween? In Jimmy Kimmel's third annual exercise in being mean to small humans, children everywhere were told all their trick-or-treating loot had been consumed by their parents—who taped the reactions and uploaded them to YouTube. The responses range from a heartfelt "I hate you!" to, well, more of the same. Admit it. You'd react the same way.

These Devil Booklets Are the Very Worst Halloween Treats

Ken Layne · 11/01/13 01:45PM

These horrible Fundamentalist Christian comics turned up in my kids' treat bags last night. We've got the English and Spanish editions of The Beast and The Devil's Night, along with an extremely dubious off-brand "Luvpop" all within a factory-sealed plastic bag. What kind of horrible treats were hiding in your bag?

What Are You Wearing for Halloween?

Halloween. It’s a great night for children who love candy and a great night for timid adults who struggle to get laid without costumes. Here we are on a cool October night, everyone just dressing up and trying to get something sweet, you know?

Joe Lhota’s campaign just released a “funny” list of Bill de Blasio’s possible Halloween costumes. So if you see a tax collector, a toll collector, a slumlord, a ghost, Silent Bob, or Tom Brady trick-or-treating tonight, it's most likely Bill de Blasio.

How the Ouija Board Became the Mouthpiece of the Devil

Ken Layne · 10/31/13 01:07PM

At Halloween parties across this dreaded land tonight, people will set up Ouija boards and tarot decks for the traditional drunken fortune teller's table of occult items. At least a few people will freak out when the Ouija board spells out something maniacal like "KILL YOU FOREVER GOOD-BYE DADDY," and again we will wonder why we keep these apparent portals to Hell in our closet alongside Connect Four and Monopoly.
