Weaning Off Halloween

By Staff Writer Anthony Penarejo

All Hallow’s Eve, better known as Halloween, is a holiday held in fearful glee by various people. Students and staff alike can recall their joy from this candy filled night in costumes ranging from cute to terrifying. Although students can remember the days of their candy escapades fondly, how many of them actually still trick-or-treat?

“I’m thinking this year I’m a little too old to trick-or-treat unless I were to take my younger sister or something like that,” said junior Alexander Dimico. “So I’ll probably just stay home and pass out candy.” The transition from child to teenager can be sad as responsibilities pile up and people get jobs to pay for candy themselves. “I feel like it gets less childish and a little more mature in a way,” said Dimico.

Just because people are growing up doesn’t mean Halloween becomes a desolate, dreaded, and dull celebration. As students grow to become adults they find other ways to enjoy the holiday. Halloween becomes less about candy scavenging and more about spending time with friends to create haunted memories. “As adults we just want to have a way to enjoy it, be joyful and happy, but it may or may not involve a costume.” said Spanish Teacher Joyce Cook. Responsibility for children, jobs, or any other (thing) may change how one would celebrate Halloween.
