Teens plan on dressing up this Halloween

This year many teens are planning on dressing up for Halloween and planning out costumes to match with friends.

According to www.history.com in 1585, ancient Celtic traditions All Saints Day would consist of the celebration of harvest and the end of summer. On November 1st the religious group would then light bonfires and wear costumes to ward scare off ghosts. The day before being October 31st was known as All Hallows Eve, then later turned into Halloween — now a religious tradition turned into costumes, parties, and trick-or-treating. In a survey of 100 Morton East students, 82 percent said they will be dressing up this year.  Out of 100 student’s 79 percent said they will be going out trick or treating.

“I think a lot of costumes I will see this year are girls wearing fairy costumes and I think boys will wear Among Us costumes.” said junior Elias Salto

As a good majority of students will be dressing up this year, some students plan on going the easy route with something quick and inexpensive.

“(I’ll do) something simple .I just want to get one of those purge masks that light up, so I don’t have to buy a full costume.” said senior Brandon Flores

Many students feel that they are to old to be dressing up for Halloween, but when interviewing a student, this is what she had to say.

“I don’t think its immature for high schoolers to dress up; it’s okay to have fun and express ourselves with our costumes.” said sophomore Diamond Monseca
