As we enter the month of October, we are just a couple of weeks away from seeing little kids running wild in costume and hearing “trick-or-treat” at our door on Halloween night. But who is stopping high-schoolers from dressing up and begging for candy door-to-door like they have done for years? The answer is no one. So, will you be running door-to-door begging for candy on Halloween night, or do you believe “trick-or-treating” should just be an activity for younger kids?

As a junior, the last time I really “trick-or-treated” was 8th grade year. The past two years, I’ve considered “trick-or-treating” but decided to hang out with my friends or finish up that last minute essay instead. I don’t have a problem with high-schoolers participating in beggar’s night as long as they are dressed for the occasion and are respectful of the younger ones around them. Halloween is an holiday that should be enjoyable for people of all ages, whether that means passing out candy or “trick-or-treating” yourself.

Halloween is once of year and is a chance for any aged kid to collect some candy and dress as their favorite fictional or real character. So, if you are willing to dress up and aren’t embarrassed to do so, get out on Halloween and enjoy a holiday meant for everyone.
