Elementary aged kids everywhere countdown the days until they can dressed up in their long awaited Halloween costumes and go door to door to get as much candy as they can in one night. In high school aged kids, Halloween is truly a hit or miss.
In Chadron High, it is apparent that more kids do not dress up as opposed to kids that do dress up to celebrate the holiday. So the big question is "Do you Dress Up for Halloween, Why or Why Not?" According to Haley Watson, her family does not participate in celebrating, so she does not find it to be a big deal. Patrick Rust said, "I do not dress up anymore because I tend to hang out with my friends and watch movies rather than go out and trick or treat." Sydney Brown also agrees on not dressing up because she tends to be out of town that night. Lastly for the majority vote, Megan Stumph said, "No, I do not dress up because I don't have anyone to dress up with, and I don't really feel the joy in the event."
On the other side of the spectrum, some students in CHS do in fact still dress up for the holiday. For example, Shelby Blundell said, "Yes, I do dress up because it's fun, and it's my job to pass out candy." The lively Hannah Kennell also dresses up. She said, "Heck yeah I dress up cause you can go around and get candy, and it's a fun thing to do with your friends. I don't think there's ever been a year that I haven't gone out and done stuff on Halloween."
