Halloween at the Prep
October 18, 2011

Witches fill the caramel apple scented air, pumpkins are being carved into ghost and goblin faces, stores are cleared out of giant bags of sugary sweets and on this special night of fright, you won’t even recognize your friends as they creep through the night collecting a sugar coated treasure. It’s that time of year again: Halloween.
Halloween is extra fun at NDP as we have many strange costumes roaming through the halls. This year “The Gateway” did a survey to see what the most popular costumes with be this year. Forty-six percent of the student body claims they are being a movie/TV character, while twenty percent are being a career based costume. Twenty-five percent of students are being an animal, including the Cheshire cat, a cow, lady bugs and bumblebees, and some people are even portraying themselves as mythical creatures. While only nine percent are being a food, one interesting idea is the taco bell sauces and a shoe stuck to gum instead of gum stuck to a shoe. Thirteen percent say they are being a super hero. Other popular categories are angels, crayons, hipsters, 80s girls, Where’s Waldo, smurfs and some students are even dressing up as one of our sophomores, Kendall Krumenacker.
It is always an interesting day at NDP, and we will look forward to displaying the results to the costume contest on “The Gateway” and seeing all of these creative costumes come to life.
