Halloween Horrors: Razors in Hiding

Halloween Horrors: Razors in Hiding

Halloween is the favorite holiday of most teenagers, who enjoy this holiday because it’s just free candy and being able to scare children. Who wouldn’t love that? The tradition started off from the ancient Celtic festival of Samhain. This festival lets people light bonfires and wear costumes to ward off spirits. Overtime, this turned into All Hallows Eve which then evolved into what we know today, Halloween. Halloween is when we carve pumpkins and dress up into costumes and go trick-or-treating. But in this article we will be talking about the more brutal and messed up parts of halloween, specifically the part where candy is getting sabotaged. 




Trick-or-treating is one of the best things about Halloween. Nobody is ever too old for it. Some people who don’t celebrate Halloween even go trick or treating. Trick or treating is just when you and your friends/family members walk around neighborhoods and ask for candy. There are a few bad things about this part of the holiday. As you know, trick or treat isn’t all treats. There is the ‘trick’ part of this. You may think that the trick part is getting your hand grabbed by a mechanical hand or people jumping at you with scary clown masks on, but it’s a lot worse. People can be very messed up on Halloween night, groups of people take black cats and form rituals, people can scream at you or call the cops. But the worst is, people putting razor blades into candy bars. Some people may be surprised or not fazed at all. The social media platform TikTok recently brought this up, but it is not a new thing at all. This ‘trend’ started around 1970 when a boy passed away from someone tinkering with his candy. There are not just razors in candy though, there can be needles, bad substances, etc. But remember, this does not have to stop you from going trick or treating, this is just a warning you to check your candy and be safe during Halloween!
