In October, students at Hidden Valley high school made plans and dressed up for Halloween in their town and at their homes. Halloween has a tradition of being a scary holiday and a sugary holiday. Halloween is a holiday where friends and family get together and carve pumpkins, get candy from different neighborhoods, dress up like fictional characters, and go to scary houses or mazes.

“What I did for halloween was hand out treats to little kids,” Layla Overtsreet (9) said. This past scary holiday is a good way to get back with friends and create a fun scary adventure.

Most family’s on Halloween carve pumpkins of different scary designs, but most families’ and students this year went to haunted houses and explored all the scary options.

“What I had the most fun this halloween was hanging out with my friends”, Keirstin Doyle (10) said.

In the olden days, halloween occasions were a lot different. People would light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off ghosts. In the eighth century, Pope Gregory III designated November 1 as a time to honor all saints. Soon, All Saints Day incorporated some of the traditions of Samhain. The evening before was known as All Hallows Eve, and later Halloween. Over time, Halloween evolved into a day of activities like trick-or-treating, carving jack-o-lanterns, festive gatherings, donning costumes, and eating treats.

There are many occasions for this holiday, but not everyone loves a spooky season. If you enjoy spooky season, here are some carving sheet sites:)
