Halloween is the one time of year we can pretend me the weirdest, craziest things and people would think it’s normal. Kids become princesses or super heroes (like my family) to recieve free candy from complete strangers. I seriously wondered though how the idea of Halloween was created. So, I did some research. Halloween was a day where people dressed up to scare off evil spirits and went around asking for money or food on behalf of the dead. Who knew that a day of scaring off evil spirits became a day of fun where kids knock on strangers doors to recieve free candy?
