Halloween Celebrated Inside


Sophia Dingmon, Journalist, Editor

October is coming quickly and with October, comes Halloween! Halloween is a fun experience that we’ve all enjoyed since we were a baby dressed as a chicken or a lion. Then we grow up and we’re dressed at a Disney princess or a zombie. Then we grow a little more and we’re Shaggy from Scooby Doo or Katniss from The Hunger Games. Then we grow to the age that going out and being dressed as a chicken or a zombie isn’t as fun as it used to be. We like the candy, the scare, the movies, and the snacks. But we can enjoy those things without having to go out and dress up!

Grab a couple friends and plan a Halloween movie night! Wear matching Halloween fuzzy socks or pajamas and eat popcorn and Frankenstein cupcakes. Watch some scary movies or some not-so-scary movies; There are thousands of Halloween movies that can be enjoyed right from your comfy couch.
