Is it appropriate for students to trick-or-treat on Halloween? Every year, I see nothing wrong with Middle School students trick-or-treating. I think it is appropriate for them to participate in the tradition of Halloween trick-or-treating. Three reasons why I think it is appropriate for students to trick-or-treat are: the fun of getting free candy, dressing up, and being able to hang out with friends on Halloween.
My first reason why I think it is appropriate to trick-or-treat as Middle School students is the fun of getting free candy. On Halloween, students get free candy because candy is delicious to eat and fun to get. Also, it’s the only day to get free candy because any other day would be awkward to be getting candy for free from strangers.
Getting to dress up for Halloween is my second reason why I think it is appropriate to trick-or-treat. Middle School students don’t get to dress up any other day, but Halloween. Halloween is the day for students to goof off and look cute, scary, funny, or cool. If we dressed up at school like we did on Halloween, we would get teased and laughed at. This is why Halloween is the day Middle School students should dress up.
My third reason for thinking trick-or-treating is appropriate for Middle School students are being able to hang out with friends. School we hang out with friends, but not during class, only before school, at lunch, and after school. Sometimes we need friends to trick-or-treat with because it’s more fun and safer.
I think it is appropriate for Middle School students to participate in the tradition of Halloween trick-or-treating. Getting free candy, dressing up, and hanging out with friends on Halloween are three reasons why it is appropriate to go trick-or-treating. If parents don’t trust students, then let’s make a neighborhood watch. Halloween will be much more fun when we trick-or-treat in a group.
