Spooky Season


The ending of September and the beginning of October means that fall is officially rolling in. Cold weather, hoodies, hot chocolate, and scary movies means Halloween is right around the corner. Grab a blanket and read about how CHS celebrates! 

Halloween is some of the students favorite holiday here at Central High School. There are many different ways to celebrate Halloween. Some students go all out for the holiday, some only dress up on Halloween, and others skip the holiday entirely. Based on a survey sent to the CHS students, many students responded with how they plan to celebrate Halloween.

67 students have not yet decorated for Halloween, but are waiting for it to get closer to the holiday to begin getting festive. Although it may seem like many students haven’t been preparing for Halloween, a majority of students are planning on dressing up this year. Some of the costumes that will be featured around Cape Girardeau this year are Gwen Stacy from the Spiderman franchise and Penny Proud from the Proud Family. There are a lot of different and unique costumes that’ll be seen in the Cape student body this year, such as Ellis Brune who will be dressing up as the Lorax.

73 students have their own personal Halloween plans and traditions. Some of the traditions that students shared in the survey are passing out candy, going to parties and just being with their families. Tacoa Batts, a sophomore at CHS, shares “We carve pumpkins and make them all themed to match, last year we did Alice and Wonderland, this year we are doing people from horror stories/movies and shows”. Another student at CHS, Adyson Lincoln, tells us her favorite part of Halloween is “being with people I care about like a partner or something and watching scary movies. I also love the idea of kids getting to go out and make core memories like I used to when I was little.” It seems this holiday still holds significance even when you get older.

Watching movies is another way to get into the spooky season mood. Lots of students shared their favorite scary movie. Some prominent ones were Scream, Saw, IT, The Conjuring, Hocus Pocus and The Nightmare Before Christmas. Jason Babers tells us, “Depends on what you consider scary. I am a big Jason fan if we’re being serious, but if we are going with the genre scary movie then I would pick Scary Movie 2.” Many people included watching classic Halloween movies as part of their traditions. Have a happy Halloween!
