Halloween is by far one of my favorite holidays! Love going to my family’s party, carving pumpkins, decorating, planning my costume!
Haley Smith, senior, Johansen High School
My family doesn’t really get into Halloween too much. We’re not really into creepy or scary things. However, I’ve dressed up since I was little. My mom always made me the most beautiful costumes, and I loved trick-or-treating with my Dad. However, now that I’m older, I enjoy going to my youth group’s Halloween party, and then volunteering at One Church’s Trunk-or-Treat celebration. It’s really fun, and this year’s theme is Disney!

For Halloween, usually I just hang out with my friends and eat candy. No trick-or-treating for me. I absolutely cannot stand teenagers who go trick-or-treating. Just go out to the dollar store and buy some candy, people. But I always like giving candy out to the kids. Seeing them in their costumes always makes my night.
