As little kids Halloween meant dressing up and trick-or-treating. Once kids grow up, Halloween means going to parties. It’s the best time of year to really let loose. Everyone has different plans for Halloween. Here are some ideas if students need an idea of what to do.
Future student, Emily “Oktober” Carbone is going caroling on Halloween. “It’s a tradition that I do with my Aunt and Uncle,” she explained. “We go door-to-door singing Christmas songs. This year I’m going with my boyfriend and dressing as batboy and batgirl.”
Some people have to work. This doesn’t mean you can’t have fun. Most places will let you dress up as long as it’s appropriate and not derogatory.
“I’m working at the Castle of Chaos,” current student Mike Harmon said. “It’s really fun to scare people. We get a really good turn out on Halloween.”
Some people have unusual ways to celebrate the holiday. Some people don’t even call it Halloween.
“I’m celebrating Halo-ween,” future student Tyler Lewis, “Instead of having a Halloween party, my friends and I are getting together to play Halo.”
Last year’s Halo-ween party was an all night adventure of pure Halo fun.
“It was a really fun night,” Lewis said. “This year will be really fun since we have the new Halo game [Halo: Reach] to play also.”
With all of the things that you can do on this fun night some people think that there are some things that you should not do.
According to funnyjunk.com, there are five things you should never do on Halloween:
• Never compliment someone on their Halloween costume because they may not be wearing one.
• If you are going as a ghost, make sure you cut the holes out for the eyes.
• Don’t go Christmas Caroling on Halloween.
• Don’t take someone else’s pumpkin.
• Don’t go trick or treating in your birthday suit.
