Christina Russell – Mustangs Ahead
(LAKEWOOD RANCH, FL) – Halloween is around the corner. Many students at LRHS have a favorite part of the holiday, whether it be the costumes, trick-or-treating, Halloween movies, or simply carving pumpkins.
Sophomore Lauren McGill stated, “My favorite part about Halloween is going to costume parties.” Sophomore Harliegh Wickwire agreed, “I love getting ready and using special-effect makeup.”
Many students spend a lot of time working on their Halloween costumes. Senior Sarah Buchanan said, “In sixth grade, my friends and I dressed up like a glow stick, it was so much fun!”
Freshman Emily Spillman dresses up like Superwoman every year. She stated, “I always dress up like her because the outfit is super cute.”
Trick-or-treating is a Halloween tradition that has lasted for centuries. Senior Hannah Akervold said, “I love the activity and I won’t stop until I’m 40 years old!”
Senior Payton Adams disagreed, “I think kids should stop trick-or treating by ninth grade, I think it’s an immature high school activity.”
Freshman Mathew Denato said, “My favorite Halloween candy is candy corn because it really brings the Halloween spirit to life.”
Senior Gia Ciccone agreed, “I put candy corn on my pizza. I love how it tastes.”
Jack-O-Lanterns are a popular Do It Yourself (DIY) Halloween decoration. “I usually let my parents carve my pumpkin for me because I’m not good with a knife,” said Julia Gennocro.
Halloween is the time of year when everyone watches scary movies.
Junior Cody Coleman said, “My favorite Halloween movie is ‘Haunted House 2’, it’s really scary and I think that’s why I like it.”
