Every year, the debate rages as to whether Halloween is really a holiday for kids or adults—well let's just solve that for you: it's a holiday for the whole family to dress up (before Mom & Dad go to a more fun party). Here are some of the best entries we've seen already this year. We'll be updating this list, so if you have your own family photos you'd like to submit, send them to tips@someecards.com with the subject line "Family Costumes."
