Halloween has kept its roots with  people of all ages celebrating for decades, starting from a religious festival called All Hallows’ Eve. Witches, black cats, and superheroes are all common Halloween costumes, and especially dressing up through the decades. From flappers to hippies to disco dancers, costumes from decades are loved by children and parents alike. These vintage costumes are fun to wear, but what did those flappers, hippies and disco dancers wear on Halloween back in the day? Check out this gallery to find out.
