Playing dress up and pretending to be someone else never gets old no matter how, er, old one gets. Which is probably why we all jump up and down with glee (even if it's just inner you and me) whenever we get an invite to a masquerade ball.
Aside from getting to wear a costume, you also get to wear a mask. The anonymity adds a great deal to the fun. So, where exactly can you find a masquerade party? It's not as if these kinds of things are regularly hosted, right? Good thing we decided to make a huge ass list of all the holiday masquerades you can attend this 2017. Are you ready to party?
