Dressing in costume is one of the most common and recognizable traditions that dates back thousands of years to celebrate one of the oldest holidays, Halloween. It was the Celts, who lived 2,000 years ago, that were believed to wear the first "costumes" consisting of animal heads and skins, during the bonfire celebration of Samhain. Even though adult costumes have come a long way from the "animal heads and skins" that the Celts wore, the desire for people to dress up in costume and celebrate a special occasion is still in our blood.

1. Crown and Coke: This is a fun couples costume or a bottle of coke complete with coke tab headband makes for a great costume on it’s own!

Classic, regal and... who are we kidding? Toga! Toga! Toga! Nothing quite sparks the party spirit like the look of the ancient Greeks. Made famous by fraternity houses, the toga has a lot of things going for it. The look is quick and simple, with a whole plethora of easy ways to accessorize. If you want to go all out, you can grab some sandals and gold wreath crowns to look like Greek royalty, or you can simply toss on the toga costume. And all it takes to get the party started while wearing this costume style is to shout the word "Toga!" and repeat ad nauseam.

Following the riot, police arrested eight anarchist leaders on charges of conspiracy. Seven of the eight were convicted of murder and sentenced to death, despite the fact that six of the defendants weren’t even in Haymarket Square at the time the bomb was thrown. At the Second International Socialist Conference in 1889, members voted to celebrate May 1 as International Workers’ Day, often referred to as May Day, to commemorate the Haymarket affair. President Cleveland wanted to avoid the socialist and anarchist connotations of May Day, so when he established a holiday to celebrate America's workers, he chose the first Monday in September, calling back to previous traditions from New York's labor movement.
