Back in high school, I discovered the joy of celebrating Halloween with my friends as we wore our costumes to Japanese most famous spot during Halloween: Shibuya. The town was flooded with people, celebrating Halloween like there was no tomorrow. This year, however, as I fell ill I, unfortunately, could not go anywhere. Nonetheless, I tried to celebrate Halloween by watching one of my favorite Halloween themed animated movies: Paranorman. Released in 2012, Paranorman is a 3D stop-motion animated comedy horror movie that tells the story of Norman Babcock who is an 11-year-old boy.
“Yeah, I’ll be there on time to pick you up. I promise I won’t be late like usual, as long as Jake is on time with the car.” Glen says to Maggie over the phone. “Okay, just so you know this is the tenth time you’ve said that, and I can’t wait for your awful excuse this time. Please let it be a good one, I need a laugh because work sucked.” “Okay, I promise it’ll be a funny excuse.” They go out, and they enjoy the night. While Maggie was too distracted by laughs Glen was driving to a cliff near their town.

Halloween Shenanigans Life is sluggish, and when an entertaining moment happens, it is easy to remember it. One such time was when my friend Payton Holm and I went around Royalton on Halloween. A week before Halloween we agreed to go walk in town. On the afternoon of Halloween I went to my Grandma’s house to acquire something to eat for the shenanigans later. Since first grade Payton has been my friend.
One of my most favorable memories is when the midnight release of Harry Potter and the Half-Blood Prince came into theaters. I remember the day as if it was yesterday. The movie came out on July 15, 2009. This day is so memorable because on the day before, July 14, 2009 my friends and I decided to dress up like the characters and browse around town all day and all night before we saw the movie at midnight. Seeing this movie at midnight was very important to us, so we bought our tickets online 2 months in advance to make sure that we were one of the 3000 people in line.
The term and the practice slowly spread, with a brief respite during WWII. After the WWII sugar rations were lifted, Halloween’s popularity saw a huge spike and within five years trick or treating was a near ubiquitous practice throughout North America. Once guising morphed into trick or treating, children no longer performed for treats, but instead vandalized and extorted for their confectioneries” (Hiskey 2012). Now trick-or-treating, along with pumpkin carving, is one of America’s most popular Halloween traditions. Carving pumpkins called, “Jack-O-Lanterns,” has been a Halloween tradition since the late 1800’s originally in the United Kingdom and later in the United States.
Chapter 2 Courage 2: When Scout popped out of the tire, there was no time for courage. She realized she was in the Radley yard and Jem was screaming at her to get out of there. Although she was afraid, the most disconcerting aspect of the event was that someone inside the Radley house was laughing. When Jem accused her of turning into a girl because she ran so fast that she forgot the tire, she didn't tell him what she'd heard' although that would have more than made up for her forgetful and hasty escape from the Radley yard. She didn't even explain to Jem and Dill that that was the reason she didn't want to play the morbid Boo Radley game any more.
Halloween A pagan holiday that used to celebrate the dead, now a night where children can dress up as their favorite characters and ask for some candy. Known by many names at its beginning, Halloween has been a celebration that truly has left its mark. Dating back 2,000 years, Halloween has had truly one of the richest histories.

Atticus begs her to admit that there was no rape, that her father beat her. She shouts at him and calls the courtroom cowards if they don't convict Tom Robinson, and then bursts into tears refusing to answer any more questions. In the recess that follows, Mr. Underwood notices the children up in the balcony, but Jem tells Scout that the newspaper editor won't tell Atticus-- although he might include it in the social section of the newspaper. The prosecution rests, and Atticus calls only one witness--Tom Robinson. Tom testifies that he always passed the Ewell house on the way to work, and that Mayella often asked him to do chores for her.
