When looking back in time at being kids who dressed up in silly costumes like superheroes and animals, the memories will stay with teens forever. Teens wish they can go back in time and relive those childhood memories one day. Memories when kids indulge in a night’s worth of getting candy and then coming home and eating all of it.
Children are known to have a creative imagination when it comes to Halloween costumes. They think of stuff, such as vampires and Disney princesses. The most popular Halloween costume for this year for girls would be a princess, and, for boys, it would be spiderman. I interviewed my brother Brody Hailer who goes to Riverview Elementary school, and he is in first grade. He is six years old and loves to go trick or treating, but he finds it scary when the people who hand out candy are dressed up.
“I really want to be Flash for Halloween because he’s really fast, and I want to be fast like him,” Hailer said.
Many little kids do not know what Halloween is really about. It is about people pretending to be anything they want to be. If they want to be a princess or a monster, that is what they will be.
“Halloween is about dressing up in costumes and scaring people, but, most of all, it’s [about] getting candy. The only thing i hate about Halloween is that I hate getting scared,” Hailer said.
Some kids will not go trick or treating because of all of the scary costumes people dress up in. Kids love to eat candy, but they have to go house to house and say, “trick or treat” to get the candy.
According to the Confectioners association, 93 percent of children, teenagers and young adults planned to go trick or treating or participate in halloween activities.
“I love going trick or treating because I get a lot of candy. When I walk to other people’s houses to get candy, my legs get tired, and I just want to go home and eat my candy that I got. Halloween scares me because of the people who come up to me in scary costumes and scare me,” Hailer says.
There are so many types of candy people hand out. Some houses give out Snickers, Kit Kats and Twix. The most popular type of candy on Halloween in 2015 would be Kit Kat bars. About 275 million of them are sold a year during halloween. The next popular candy bar would be fun-size Snickers bars.
“My favorite kind of candy are Skittles and Starburst because there chewy and good,” Hailer said.
Even though trick or treating is mainly for kids, adults and teenagers are still allowed to share that fun. There is no age in which you can not go trick or treating. Anyone and everyone is allowed to partake in Halloween festivities.
