Students get ready for Halloween

As Halloween creeps its way around the corner, Lecanto High School students can hardly contain their excitement while preparing for the holiday.

Many teenagers believe they are too old or mature to waste their time going trick-or-treating, but others argue that it doesn’t matter how old you are; you’re never too old to have a good time.

“Yeah, there should be an age limit. It’s childish and should be for little kids,” freshman Allison Seaman said.

 “No, there’s not [an age limit on trick-or-treating]. I’m going! I’m 17 and I’m going with my best friend who’s 18,” senior Courtney Hoffman said.

“You can’t be too old, because it’s fun, and everyone needs at least one day to just dress up. [Everyone needs for] it to be normal for people to look weird and goof off with your friends,” freshman Logan Winter said.

Just like any other holiday, people celebrate in many different ways.

Students at LHS seem to have similar ways of celebrating.

“I’m going out to Halloween parties,” freshman Kelly Abramski said.

Dressing up isn’t only for little kids anymore. Students are starting to brainstorm about what they should be, while reminiscing back on their favorite childhood costumes.

“I think I want to be an alien this year, since I like being different,” Winter said.

“[My] two best friends [and I] were the Powerpuff Girls,” Hoffman said. “I was Buttercup.”

Everyone has a favorite part of Halloween and many of their favorite parts are similar.

“[My favorite part is] the candy, obviously,” Hoffman said.

“You get free candy! Who doesn’t like that?” Abramski said.

“My favorite part of Halloween is that you can go out in public dressed in a ridiculous costume and not get judged by everyone you walk by,” Winter said.

Students are prepared to have a great time trick-or-treating for Halloween 2011.
