Spooky Fun! Trick or Treat
That Was Then… Treat
Every kid loved Halloween and going out to trick or treat. I would race home from school so my mom could put together some sort of costume for me then rush to meet my friends to go trick or treating. Somehow, by the time I had my own kids, Halloween included much more; carving pumpkins, putting up decorations, more formal costumes, and, of course, trick or treating throughout our neighborhood, but not without a parent escort.
This is Now… Trick
Halloween traditions in college are, well, a far cry from the pumpkin carving, candy apple making gatherings we had in our driveway before the kids started their trick or treating. Many places, including frats, will have parties – all week. Halloween week, I’m not going to lie, gives a whole new meaning to the BOO in Booze. Keep in mind this is Orlando and there is a lot of Halloween-themed partying going on in general.
It may not be a bad idea to remind your students of all the nice parts of Halloween and to keep their good judgment about them when they make plans for ‘adult’ trick or treating.. A hint to be sure they have all their work done before they go out is wise too.
On a Lighter Note….Going to UM, students have plenty of Halloween events to choose from.
