The spooky spirit arrives at Eagle High

Halloween is one of the best holidays of the year. At Eagle High, it is anticipated to be one of the most exciting social events of the school year. Many students will spend months before Halloween planning their costumes. Since the last few Halloweens have fallen on a weekend, many students have started to plan out having two or more costumes to wear throughout the weekend, because Halloween day falls on a Monday this year. 

Halloween has continued to be one of the most popular holidays for little kids and teenagers alike. The excitement to get to dress up in a costume is something that does not fade even as kids grow older. “My daughters are dressing up as the Grinch and the Grinch’s dog, Max,” said teacher Nikki Christiansen.

This year, it is predicted that some of the most popular costumes will be Elvis and Priscilla Presley or characters from “Stranger Things” or “Hocus Pocus”. For last year’s Halloween, some of the most seen costumes were cowgirls, hippies and pirates. Every year, it is very interesting getting to see what people come up with and how they express their own personal style in their costumes.  

Some of the best ways to celebrate this spooky holiday are scary movie nights, pumpkin carving and going to local haunted houses. Typically, there are dance parties with open invites to high school students in honor of getting in the Halloween spirit. Last year, the Idaho Boys threw a spooky party at their barn here in Eagle. The party was a success and has given this year’s Halloween high expectations.
