If you're suffering from routine holiday fatigue consider adopting the
lost practice of Thanksgiving Masking. In the late 19th and early 20th
century, children used to dress up in masks and beg, door to door, for
pennies or fruit. The Maskers practice eventually morphed into what we
now know as Halloween. But rather than looking out of date, I find the
Maskers' ensembles refreshingly stylish, and cutting edge, akin to the layered, hyper Americanized looks found in the Japanese fashion magazine, Free & Easy. This Thanksgiving day, I encourage you to assemble your own Maskers ensemble for a post meal perambulation through your neighborhood.
