As Halloween quickly approaches, many North Americans are enthusiastically getting into the spooky spirit -- but if for you, October 31st means a long night of bad parties and even worse costumes, you might want to check out 'The Rules of Halloween.'

Created by Christie Young as part of her ongoing 'The Rules Of:' series, the illustrated guide acts as more of a support system than a helpful how-to. The first two steps of the guide, "Start planning costume November 1st," and "Forget every good idea you had. It's now October 30th," definitely speak to me, as I always seem to be scrambling for last-minute ideas. While I do admire those who are able to successfully plan ahead, I'm extremely glad to see I'm not the only one who annually suffers from Halloween costume woes.
