All through the month of October everyone was excited for halloween! I was talking to some adults I knew and they began to tell me what halloween was like for them when they went trick-or-treating. I learned that it was not as gory a holiday it is today. There was probably no fear from kids that someone in a clown costume would jump out and hurt you! It seems like halloween has changed in the past few years. I think this could have something to do with technology. First of all, there was no social media when most middle-aged adults were young. Also, people started dressing up as clowns to scare people this year and making threats on social media. Obviously, social media had an affect on halloween this year, and it also contributed to making halloween a scarier holiday. Thankfully, this didn't stop anyone from having a great halloween!
