When it is chilly on Halloween, the idea was to wear a costume OVER your clothes so that you would be dressed for the occasion and still warm enough.
And it came to be that Rachel truly understood this. One year she was a zebra another year a pumpkin fairy and later, a Spider Queen with her long blond hair separated into eight sections to resemble legs and a web made out of yarn on her head. The last year she did trick or treat was 6th grade, she went as a scarecrow. Did Jaeme know this when she planned her costume for this year? Clairvoyance, maybe?
