Halloween Can Be Frightfully Fun
By Joyce Furstenau
  

1     Halloween is a holiday that is fun for all. Everyone enjoys dressing in disgusting disguises and ghostly garments on Halloween. Trick-or-treating is a Halloween tradition. It is a time when children can become someone else for a night. It is also a time to eat lots of candy. Costume parties, ghostly train rides, and visiting pumpkin patches are family-friendly Halloween activities.
 
2     Schools have costume parades and contests. Some communities sponsor alternative events. Community Halloween parties are offered to take the place of trick-or-treating. Some organizations offer "trunk-or-treating" as a safe alternative to trick-or-treating. People fill the trunks of their cars with treats. Kids go trick-or-treating from trunk to trunk around the parking lot. This helps keep youngsters away from busy traffic areas.
