Majority of students will dress up for Halloween.

Out of 100 Morton east students 72 said they will dress up for Halloween.

Halloween is a time of celebration and superstition. It is thought to be originated with the ancient Celtic Festival of Samhain, where people would wear costumes to ward off roaming ghost. Halloween reached America in the mid-19th century with the influx of Irish immigrants who brought their mix of Samhain, Pomona and pagan traditions.

”I don’t celebrate Halloween or participate in wearing costumes but its fun seeing other wearing cool costumes,” Morton east senior Samuel Gonzalez said.

”My favorite costume for Halloween is (the) Scream (mask) because it’s a simple yet scary,” senior student Israel Salgado said.

There are people that spend as much as $60 for their Halloween costumes.

”I spend $50 or less on my costume at Party City — there are a variety of costumes for sale,” Morton east sophomore student Litzy Lopez.

The wearing of costumes at Halloween may come from the belief that supernatural beings, or the souls of the dead, roamed the earth at this time.
