Are you legal this Halloween? Some states have laws directly or indirectly related to Halloween, dictating what residents can and cannot wear and how they can celebrate All Hallow's Eve.

Here are some of the strangest laws that may affect your spooky celebrations.

1. No masks or disguises are allowed on a public street in Walnut, Calif., without permission from the sheriff.

2. In Alabama, it is illegal to dress as a priest, nun, or any other clergy member.

3. Some cities set an age limit on trick-or-treating, like Belleville, Ill., which has banned high schoolers from going trick-or-treating.
