Halloween is an enjoyable time for all ages. Some students go to parties, hang out with friends, or trick or treating.

COVID muddled some people’s plans for Halloween fun like Grayson Trout, junior. “I was supposed to go to a friend’s house for our annual sleepover,” typed Trout. “[But], my friend got Covid so we couldn’t hang out.”

But, this year, the Leesville community is more than ready to hit the streets for candy or party with friends. See below what some students are doing.

“COVID did not derail any plans last year,” typed Montague. “I went to a pumpkin patch with my best friends, carved them and had the best time ever!”

In 2019, Montague went to the band’s Halloween party as a gumball machine.

Camille Xu, junior, didn’t trick or treat with friends last year. Instead, she stayed home and watched movies with her friend. But, this year she is going to do more for the holiday. 

“I am dressing up with four of my friends, and we are going to be fairies,” typed Xu. “We are going to hang out at one of my friend’s houses.” 

“It was easy to plan something low-key,” typed Xu. “We just wanted to hang out with each other, so covid wasn’t really a concern.” 

Isabella Burks 

 

COVID-19 did not interfere with Isabella Burks’s, sophomore, plans for Halloween in 2020. 

“Last year I went as Alice in Wonderland with my little sister and she was Cheshire Cat,” typed Burks.

This Halloween, Burks is going with her friend as a cheerleader from Olivia Rodrigo’s music video for her song, Good 4 u.

Haley McAlarney 

 

Haley McAlarney, junior, spent last Halloween with her hockey team doing COVID safe trick or treating. 

But, this year she’s spending it with her friends. “I’m going to my camp’s Halloween retreat called Fall Y’all,” said McAlarney. 

Whether people decide to stay home or go out for Halloween, the “spooky spirit” remains present among the Leesville student body.
