This is one of those weird laws in the State of Alabama, and if you dress up for Halloween, you might be breaking the law!  In Alabama, there is a law in the Alabama Code 13A-11-9, under “Loitering”, that will surprise you!  A person commits the crime of loitering if he, being masked, loiters, remains, or congregates in a public place.  That’s right, if you wear a mask, or wear something on your face on Halloween, you are breaking the law in Alabama!  There is another crazy law in Alabama that also applies to Halloween.  Section 13A-14-4 of the Alabama Code says that, “Fraudulently pretending to be clergyman” will get you arrested and fined.  So, if you dress up as a priest, you can be arrested, crazy stuff!

So, if you are in Alabama, and are now looking for some alternative Halloween costumes so you don’t break the law, I have five YouTube videos showing you some last-minute Halloween costumes.  Enjoy those videos below, and don’t break the law!
