Why Halloween Is the Perfect Time for Self-Expression
After facilitating my company’s leadership meeting last week, I found myself enjoying dinner with five co-workers. Three were relatively new to the organization, and instead of talking business, we thought it would be fun to ask “get to know you” questions at the table. When I asked this group of primarily 40-somethings about their favorite Halloween costume of all time, the look of delight on their faces was priceless. While a few people talked about childhood costumes, most focused on creative get-ups donned as adults. And that’s when I realized that, as grown-ups, Halloween has really become about creatively expressing ourselves.
