Instajournal: Nolaween or...

New Orleans’ Halloween is a funny thing, Throughout the year, we use just about any excuse (Canadian Boxing Day anyone?) to dress up and arrest traffic with our casual parades. Needless to say, the line between "Happy Halloween" and "Happy Tuesday afternoon" is a fine one. After some awkward "I like your costume," "What costume?" exchanges, I've finally realized, in the Big Easy, Halloween costumes should be treated like pregnancies: when in doubt, never assume.

So that brings us to the lingering question: is it Nolaween or just Nola?

You be the judge.
