Halloween in Carbondale was very dangerous in the past three years. For example, a lot of people were arrested because they damaged the city. However, when the city of Carbondale saw how serious this problem was, they closed the bars and kept the university open. I think closing the bars in the Halloween is the best solution to avoid this kind of problem. And, when the university is open the students will be busy, which is also a great thing.

I did an interview with Laura Halliday about Halloween in Carbondale. Laura Halliday has a good background about Halloween because she has lived in Carbondale since her childhood. And, in her childhood she wore a costume and went to get some candy from the people (trick or treat) which is something usually children do in Halloween. However, she said the damage which happened in Halloween in Carbondale is not caused by the people who live in the town, but when the people who live next to Carbondale hear that a party will be in Carbondale, they come to the town and damage the town and fight. Also, she thinks that closing the bars is a good idea but for a while, not every Halloween. Moreover, she thinks that the university must trust the students, and I agree with that. Also, she said, Carbondale did not handle Halloween problem well in the past. Finally, the best solution to avoid these kinds of problem is to make a concert or activity, which the university will do and be in charge, as Laura Halliday said. And, I agree with Laura Halliday because students need to do some fun activity.

    I heard that we don't have a fall break because the school is concerned that there could be a dangerous party like in the past. I don't know if this is true, but I'm glad they have tried to solve the problem.

    Every year my son Dylan and I have been building our Halloween animatronic display. This year we added 12 new figures and my wife had been making the clothes etc. but then I clued in that Halloween Costumes were the ideal solution - ya, ok I'm slow but...This year is really cool because we've done an HP Lovecraft display that I'm sure he'd appreciate but I'm not so sure he'd approve of this - The Necronomicon - Is it just me or is that just plain goofy ? Anyway, everybody is doing their own Haunted House thing now but hey - it's fun and if you've got kids I really suggest you try it yourself if you haven't already. It's a nice change from the usual Christmas Lights routine and a lot of scaaarrry fun. Happy Halloween everybody.
