Once it finally becomes the first of October, students and teachers alike get excited for Halloween. Many start planning out things to do for Halloween early in the month, or even before the month even begins.

Those deciding to get excited about Halloween can start talking about scary movies, do-it-yourself Halloween costumes and decorations.

It’s fun, exciting, and, usually, something to look forward – as a once in a year celebration just like any other holiday.

Some people complain, however, that people shouldn’t start thinking about Halloween until after the midway point of the month.

“Lighten up, there’s only one time in the year where it’s socially acceptable to be scary out in public,” junior Isabella Jackson said.

So is it okay to get so excited over a holiday at the end of the month?

“People are allowed to feel however they want to feel,” junior Marisol Barraza said. “If they want to get excited about Christmas in October, it’s totally up to them.”

Many students tend to agree with Barraza and stated that they didn’t really see it as a huge problem.

The general consensus: If people want to get excited about it earlier than most people, some students agree that they totally have the right to do so, regardless if others find it obnoxious.

People are allowed to get excited over a celebration that only happens once a year just like if someone gets excited over birthdays and Christmas.

Ultimately, it’s a choice that everyone has to make individually.

“If you think that getting excited over Halloween is a bad thing, you shouldn’t have to make a huge deal out of it,” Barraza said. “Them being excited too ‘early’ in the year isn’t going to affect your life in any way unless you really let it affect you.”
