Anyone else dress as a Hobo for Halloween as a kid?

I did. Because its all our mother could afford
Today it might be considered racist.
So sad !

Yes. We dirtied our faces with a burnt cork.

How is it racist though?
I think I was a hobo one year - god I forget

I actually did! It was a ‘what do I have around the house?’ Kind of decision bc our church was having a Halloween party & I didn’t have a costume. ... not my favorite costume (a ghost- sheet was cheap too ), but I remember the party was fun. 😀
PS: yes, today is very different.. our churches here no longer have those great Halloween parties (complete with haunted house), bc it’s the ’devil’.
