For about four years I’ve been on a trick or treating hiatus. After I turned thirteen, I thought I was too cool for Halloween. I would have rather sat at home and play video games. This Halloween I decided to go out with a few of my so-called friends, Kadie Cornell and Jacey Grimm met us near the old Galveston Elementary School. Around here, we got our costumes ready to go and started trick or treating throughout the small town of Galveston. Hopefully, this will continue to be a tradition, or I’ll have to come up with another Halloween idea.

To me, Halloween is something everyone should participate. Kids enjoy all the amazing costumes, and it persuades them to come up with new ideas. Along with the fun costumes, all kids enjoy candy. Not very many kids dislike like candy, which is partly because it tastes so good. Because of candy, millions of people go out and participate in Halloween every year. Kids can spend time together and search for the best candy. In fact, “chocolate has been shown to boost mood-enhancing chemicals in the brain like endorphins and serotonin,” says PsychCentral editor Diana L. Walcutt, Ph.D. One thing I enjoy about Halloween is the parties. Most Halloween parties require you to dress up for a theme or just in a costume. Some have games like bobbing for apples, and some even have haunted houses. Speaking of haunted houses, they really are interesting. It’s the quick thrills that give people adrenaline. Walking down a dark hallway not knowing what is coming next is interesting to a lot of people. Students here at Lewis Cass participated in a haunted house at the Grissom Air Force base, which was hosted by previous Cass alumni. Tickets were $12 a person, and it seemed to be a success.

Here, they have created an elaborate costume based on the movie Star Wars.

   A big part of Halloween is that you’re allowed to pretend to be somebody else for one night. You can create a really elaborate costume or something simple. One of the craziest costumes I’ve ever seen was a star wars stormtrooper on a speeder bike. They converted a small motorbike into a speeder bike using long attachments on the front with cardboard and spray paint. I think this was cool because he made the costume himself along with his friend. They chose to ride their costume throughout New York City which attracted attention from almost everyone.. Seeing something different on Halloween is fun for everyone.

   Trick or Treating is a huge part of Halloween. All the kids in the neighborhood come together and show off their costumes to houses and receive some candy in return. Some houses go all out to decorate their house the best. Someone in my neighborhood converted their garage into a haunted house maze. These creative ideas all excite kids and make trick or treating something fun to do. Trick or treating can be scary for some people, but once you start seeing others in costumes it gets better.
