ISSUE 1: Halloween Doesn’t Discriminate Against Age

Who says adults can’t trick or treat?

The fall/Halloween section at CVS is a great place to find some seasonal decorr.

Halloween is a time for all, tall or small, late at night and full of frights. But how old is too old for people to roam the streets and get tricks and treats? Does it really matter who goes out, will it cause issues and shouts? I personally don’t think so; I believe anybody can have a fun and joyous time on Halloween night. 

Some may say that it’s weird for people who aren’t kids to go out and trick or treat. But the point of the holiday is to be weird and scare people. When else are you allowed to dress up as anything you can think of and get scared for fun? Anyone who judges anyone else who wants to go out and have fun and trick or treat on Halloween is a bad sport because they hate fun.

Halloween is a holiday for everyone to celebrate and enjoy, no matter their age. The older you get, the more opportunities open: parties, scary movies and most importantly you can drive to neighborhoods with better candy. Sugar and sweets are what most people would consider to be important for Halloween and the older you are, the less limited you are by your area. Everyone wants to go and get king sized candy from every house. No one wants to miss out on trick or treating.

Trick or treating is an amazing opportunity for families to strengthen their ties and have fun. Who is to say that teenagers, adults and even grandparents can’t dress up in costumes and have fun just as kids do. Halloween is an opportunity for them to pass on traditions as well. For example, some of my fondest memories come from me and my grandfather, my peepaw, egging houses every Halloween.

Not to mention, trick or treating is primarily done at night, which is weird to consider as it’s supposed to be just for kids. Kids are supposed to have plenty of sleep and go to sleep early, especially since Halloween is usually on a school night. So, this gives a significant advantage to the older audience who don’t have to go to bed early. So, if Trick or Treating is flawed for both sides, then why not let everyone celebrate?

In the end, Halloween is a time for all. It’s a time to go out late and have fun with friends, family and strangers. So regardless of age, any person can celebrate Halloween and go trick or treating, because it’s a time for everyone.

About the Contributors
Coleton Rone, Staff Writer
Coleton Rone is a junior and a staff writer for the Knight Writers. This is his first year on staff. Rone is looking toward being one of the new hosts for the Knight Writers' very own Knight Mic and is most excited for the environment and excitement that surrounds it. "I joined newspaper because I thought I would have a lot of fun doing the interviews [for Knight Mic]," Rone said. "I'm excited for the football games specifically...I think the interviews there are going to be very enjoyable because the environment at [football games] is an experience of its own." Outside of journalism, Rone enjoys tapping into his musical side, he enjoys listening to music and playing his instruments. He plays bass guitar on his own, but academically, Rone plays double bass for Orchestra. Aside from music, Rone is a true fitness enthusiast at heart, as he enjoys testing his physical limits with weightlifting. He expresses this passion of his by lifting at least 4 times per week. When he isn't becoming a rising musician and expressing his athletic abilities, Rone spends his free time with his many pets but primarily his cat named Duck while watching Amazing World of Gumball. When asked about his greatest inspiration, the top person that comes to his mind is his Dad. "...he's a good person [with] good moral values, and he doesn't do anything despicable or evil," Rone said. After he leaves Robinson, Rone isn't quite sure what he will do next. He plans on either going to a 4 year university to major in business, or going to a trade school to learn more about a career in mechanics. (Profile by Keirra McGoldrick)
Charlotte Stone, Co-Editor-in-Chief
Charlotte Stone is a senior at Robinson and the Co-Editor-in-Chief of Knight Writers. This is her third year on staff and her third year as an editor. A nod to her original editorial position as Features Editor, Stone enjoys writing in-depth stories about her peers. “My favorite part of journalism is writing features stories,” Stone said. “I love learning about and sharing the unique stories of Robinson students.” An involved member of the Robinson community, Stone co-founded the RHS Film Club and serves as Captain of the girl’s tennis team. As a lover of the classical period, Stone additionally serves as the co-president of the Latin Club. To balance out her academic responsibilities, Stone pursues an eclectic mix of hobbies. “One of my hobbies is collecting sea glass. I started when I was younger and my collection has continued to grow so much since then,” Stone said. “I also love to play guitar. It’s a great creative outlet and helps me relax and take a break from academic responsibilities.” While Stone is fond of the features section, her well-rounded portfolio reflects her wide range of interests. From writing an A&E review to a Q&A, Stone showcases her unique perspective to create insightful, in-depth and engaging stories. As Co-Editor-in-Chief, Stone hopes to build a capable staff to secure the legacy of Robinson’s storied publication. Going into her final year on staff, Stone begins to look to the future. “Honestly I don’t really know what the future looks like for me,” Stone said. I’m not sure what I want to do, but I hope that I’ll be doing something that I love and doesn’t have anything to do with STEM.” (Profile by Vikram Sambasivan)
