Throwback Thursday: Halloween costume sales, trick-or-treating and more from Classroom Magazines

As you can probably tell just by our last few OOM posts, we really get into the Halloween spirit here at Scholastic. That made me think that we've probably always been quick to embrace the creepy and spooky. So, this week, Deimosa and I ventured down into the Archive to look through our old classroom magazines.

In the card catalog, we checked out the cards under the categories "holidays" and "Halloween" for a few of our magazines. We found some great things!
