     Halloween has always been my favorite holiday, and I’m disappointed that we’re never off school the next day for it. It’s not exactly fun having to do homework instead of taking your younger sibling trick-or-treating or watching a scary movie. Plus I want to stay up late and eat candy, and I can’t exactly do that if I need to get up at 7 a.m. the next morning. We get off of school at 3:20 p.m. and I don’t get home until four. That gives me about five hours, take two of those for homework time, so three hours to get spooky. That’s not enough time for me.

     I know we have a set amount of days we have to go to school, but maybe we could take one of our spring vacation days and switch it to have the day after Halloween off. Borgia has the day after off because of All Saints’ Day, which is another reason, my family is hardcore catholic. They won’t get to practice or go to church because my niece and I will be in school. I guess I’ll just have to wait until Halloween is on a Friday, or I’m in college, to get the next day off.
