With Halloween just around the corner, many high school students ponder going trick-or-treating. Trick-or-treating may appeal to younger kids, but some high-schoolers say there is no age limit to go out and enjoy themselves.   

“I’m going trick-or-treating this year because you’re never too old to go. My friend and I wanted to go as [princesses] because we thought it would be fun to go out and get candy with a group of our friends,” Faith Cooper (10) said.

With the pressure that some students receive from school and work, Halloween can give them an outlet to release their stress.

“Halloween is where I can dress up and go out with my close group of friends and make memories. I can forget about school and all the stress that comes with it, which is such a [relief],” Breanna Campbell (10) said.

Some students go out trick-or-treating to show off their costumes and to have an night full of memories.   

“It’s one night of the year where your age doesn’t matter and you can go dress up with your friends and have a good time and let loose. You also get free candy, which is a positive,” Katherine Morzy (9) said.
