Every holiday has its magic; Christmas has the vibes of a winter wonderland (and the eggnog), Thanksgiving has the pumpkins and the magical autumn atmosphere and then there’s the Fourth of July, with the fireworks and barbecues. However, if you ask us, no holiday even comes close to Halloween – the one chance we get every year to unleash our creativity and be someone else for one night. Even if you’re not a fan of haunted houses, everyone loves Halloween.
Tweedledee and Tweedledum
We’re all familiar with the iconic duo Tweedledee and Tweedledum, who started their way in the literary world back in 1871. Although most people believe they were first introduced in Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, the stocky characters first appeared in Lewis Carroll’s 1871 sequel, Through the Looking-Glass, and What Alice Found There.
Either way, the funny-looking duo has become so popular over the years, that Tweedledee and Tweedledum became a synonym for any couple that looks and acts alike, and, as you can see, they’ve become a popular choice for a Halloween costume. It might not be the most original costume out there, but the execution is almost flawless, and we always appreciate any literary reference.
