When you're putting your Halloween costume away for the year keep in mind that costumes are useful other times of the year as well. Sometimes a good Santa Claus suit can add a lot to Christmas for your kids, as well as the fact that a Santa costume can be used at some jobs or maybe a Santa suit for a big event coming up.
