When I was young I grew out of Halloween pretty fast. Literally and figuratively, I was the only kid by 13 years old, who was bored of Halloween yet still wearing a clown costume that fit me when I was 8. All throughout my childhood kids would go out and celebrate and I would just stay home, handing out candy with my grandma. Now don’t feel bad because it didn’t bother me. However, I guess now I see I was missing out. As I got older, I found that Halloween has this special type of camaraderie attached with it. You know getting together with friends to buy costumes and then going out together in said costumes. During college I began to really enjoy Halloween for these aspects. So you can understand how excited I was to celebrate in a whole other country. Yet as excited as I couldn’t help feeling a wee bit discouraged due to numerous people telling me halloween is “not a big thing here”. Luckily for me, my fellow ulster scholars made it a great one! We dressed up as characters from the classic movie Holes and slayed up and down the Belfast streets. There were some places where we were the only people dressed up and in others we weren’t. But overall, it was another successful Halloween. Just goes to show you if your with great people, no matter what it should be good craic!
