Students Don’t Universally Celebrate Halloween Traditions

Trick or treating popularity reduces
Students+Dont+Universally+Celebrate+Halloween+Traditions

Many students believe Halloween to be a holiday that you celebrate when you are younger by going out with your friends, getting dressed up in a costume, and going trick or treating. 

Yet as people get older, these notions change. Nate Heithoff ‘22 believes high schoolers going trick or treating with one another is “a little creepy.” Although, Heithoff states, “I celebrate Halloween by either going to a party or go trick or treating with my little brother.” 

Halloween looks different for various students as Sophia Wagner ‘21 says she “[will] get candy to give out to little kids, but that’s it.” Wagner takes the more traditional approach to trick or treating as she gives out candy to younger children. Because she is older, she feels that she has outgrown dressing up in a way and going trick or treating herself. 

As students become older, they feel that getting dressed up in costumes and going trick or treating is assumed to be something that only younger kids participate in. As a result of these notions against high schoolers trick or treating with one another, halloween parties become more popular. Students still like celebrating with their friends, but it turns into a party rather than a trick or treating experience

Hi! I'm Catherine and I am a Senior. I have been a staff writer for two years, edited the Sports and Food Features pages last year and now I edit the Sci-Tech page. Outside of Spectrum, you can find me on the tennis court or on the lacrosse field! My favorite part about Spectrum is the process of fine-tuning your page, because it's so fun to see both your own page and the final paper come to fruition.
