Why Halloween Is the Best Holiday
By: Basil Wang
It’s that time of year again- and no, by that, I don’t mean Christmas. I’m talking about something much better: Halloween, my favourite holiday of the year, for numerous reasons. First off, Halloween is the only holiday where everyone is included, and is completely stress-free for everyone. For example, no one is bothered by irritating tasks such as buying and returning gifts, dealing with annoying family members in a friendly manner, and cooking up festive foods. Also, people of all ethnicities can celebrate halloween, and it not limited to a certain religion. Besides, forget the turkey, forget the bad-tasting heart shaped chocolates, and the pie which mom makes every year that the whole family has to pretend to like. We’re talking real food during halloween, like KitKat’s, and Mars bars’ which everyone can enjoy, and you don’t even need to buy! Only on this one day of the year, will you be able to arrive at any stranger’s doorway, knock. and receive free candy. During halloween, everyone of all ages can have a blast. The kids can trick-or-treat, the teens can party, and the adults can hand out candy, or even better, scare unsuspecting kids.
