What's behind the mask? - Why we dress up for Hallowe'en
It’s Hallowe’en….”trick or treat!”!
Tonight, costumed kids EVERYWHERE will be hitting the streets to fill their loot bags.
But ever wonder why we wear costumes during Hallowe’en in the first place?
Sebastien Despres is no stranger to putting on a mask.
He’s competed in the George Street Mardi Gras costume contest for years having won it 5 times.
He’s also doing a phD in Anthropology at Memorial University.
John Gaudi reached Sebastien Despres in Witless Bay to find out what the appeal is all about.
