Halloween is one of the most celebrated holidays in the United States. Some people choose to trick or treat while some wear costumes to either scare or impress other people. I wanted to find out how much people actually celebrate the holiday and why. The majority of kids I spoke to said they celebrated Halloween just for the candy. A large number said they don’t celebrate Halloween at all. I celebrate Halloween for what I consider the best part: the candy. Why do you celebrate Halloween? Here are my results:
