Halloween: What’s In and What’s Out
Out: The two students that dress up as the twins from the shining and win “scariest costume” every year – EVEN THOUGH THERE’S TWO OF THEM SO TECHNICALLY IT DOESN’T COUNT
In: Halloween ending at 11pm. Last year I went trick-or-treating with my friends at 9:30 and all the houses were out of candy.
Out: HALLOWEEN BEING ON A MONDAY??? And we still have school the day after… even though we have a whole “Faculty Work Day (why can’t that be moved to Tuesday?). Post-Halloween should be a national holiday!
In: Full sized candy bars
Out: Raisinettes, candy corn, tootsie rolls, licorice, jelly beans, and laffy taffy (especially the banana flavor). Not to mention the houses that hand out toothbrushes and pretzels!
In: Teenagers trick-or-treating. You’re never too old for candy!
Out: Overused costumes, Stranger things costumes, and COVID-19 related costumes.
In: No homework the weekend before Halloween.
Out: Those camo brown inflatable dino costumes (I will watch you slowly deflate throughout the school day with glee)
In: ALMOND JOYS AND MOUNDS!! All the coconut haters should stop reading immediately.
Out: People stealing the whole bowl of candy when it says to “take one please”
