Halloween Items
I really like the items that were given out around halloween, but it sucks that I can't use them for a long time. Valve fix pls.

Some servers like Skial allow the use of Halloween items all year round.

It would change theme of game. This game is about cartoon like characters from year 1950. Zombies, werewolves, ... are allowed only 2 days a month during full moon and 2 weeks during halloween. I think it is enough so that it would not completely change the game.

Just look for a server which has Halloween mode enabled and hosts the 4 Halloween maps. There are plenty.

How would it change the theme of the larger game? That's just nonsense.

The "theme" of TF2 is an FPS team competition strategy game with cartoonish amounts of violence. Or do you mean the art style, which started out as "slightly cartoony Americana", but has, as Valve has admitted in the TF2 blog, evolved beyond that? (Such as introducing medieval-themed and futuristic-themed maps and promo items from crossovers with cyberpunk games like Deus Ex: Human Revolution or 18th century clothing.)

The game's canon is set in an alternate history, weird-science world of the year 1968, not 1950. Although technically with the coming of the bot invasion from Gray Mann, the year is now 1972 in TF2 universe.

Servers that run tf_forced_holiday will allow you to wear them. Unfortunately, they are working on a bug with this so it won't work right now. The next patch is expected to have a fix for it.
