FARMINGTON, Utah -- Halloween is the one chance for people in cubicles everywhere to be somebody else.

"My name is Nicole Dennis. I work for the Division of Forestry and State Lands. I'm the administrative secretary. I am a witch."

Q: Every day or just today?

"Sometimes I bet my coworkers would say everyday, but I'd like to say probably just today," says Dennis.

This year the Department of Natural Resources dressed up and played games to raise money for Jackson Elementary School.

"We are playing a Pictionary-type game and we are pitting divisions against divisions to see who's the best," says a DNR employee.

"My name is Jonathan Peterson. I work for iTransact and I'm the Gateway Technical Support. I am actually the Huntsman off of 'Once Upon a Time'."

At iTransact, a credit card processing business in Farmington, almost every employee dressed up.

"Most days of the year, it can be pretty hard work working here and it can be pretty stressful," says employee Robert Tate. "But [on] Halloween we get together and have fun and it definitely boosts morale and makes everyone more cheerful."

Those working at iTransact say although growing old is mandatory, growing up is optional.
