What do you know about Halloween?

“It’s all about candy and uh, costumes. There’s a song I know, like spooky scary skeletons la la la la la… yeah that’s all I know.” -James

“Trick-or-treating? Hmm… going to another house to trick-or-treat. We ring the doorbell. A light is only when we come in, no electricity – we don’t come in. If somebody’s busy with the light on, we gotta find another house.” -William

“I know that you can wear costumes… get candy!” -Maya

“You walk down the streets at night time.” -Eliza

“We’re making haunted houses over there.” -Jack

“It’s for people to dress up and go outside. They go trick-or-treating and get candy, you gotta um, knock at the door and they give you candy. Everybody dresses up in the whole wide world too.” -Theo

A light is only when we come in, no electricity – we don’t come in. ”

— William
