This reporter decided to find out by polling students in lunch periods. Out of 182 students that responded to an informal Warrior Ink survey here at IRHS:

17.58% (32/182) said they were dressing up for Halloween!

3.29% (6/182) were unsure if they were dressing up this year for Halloween!

And 79.12% (144/182) flat out said they weren’t dressing up for Halloween!

Dressing up for Halloween has been tradition since the 16th century Scotland and it seems as if people get older, they seem to stop dressing up.

There definitely was an age factor in our survey. Most of the people that took the poll of that said no were upperclassmen, while more younger students here at Indian River said that they were dressing up.

Maybe it’s due to the fact that people think it’s childish to dress up, and/or people don’t like the idea of taking candy from strangers. The whole idea of trick or treating is now viewed as childish, but I don’t agree with that view.

I believe that people should have fun on Halloween because it’s one of the few times of the year where it is socially acceptable to dress up and eat as much candy as you want! (Unless you’re diabetic, in which case, you probably shouldn’t eat candy!)

Personally I find it to be one of the best holidays of the year!
