Having an excellent childhood means that you loved to express what you wanted to be when you grew up. Children would say that they wanted to be a policemen, firefighter, doctor, teacher, princess, etc. We would still remember those memories today because these memories bring so much attention to us as we grow older.
What’s one costume that you still remember today?
“I dressed up as a punk-rocker. I honestly think that I was a punk-rocker because my Aunt Ann was just seven years older than me and influenced me and my brother to do it with her. I didn’t have an older sister, and I thought she was so cool and wanted to do everything she did. She was really into music,” said Mrs. O’Malley.
“When I was around seven years old, I was Spider-Man for Halloween. I went to trick-or-treat with my neighbor downtown in the rich, white neighborhood to get tons of candy (which we did). At one house, there was a skeleton in a black robe sitting on a chair. We did not know that it was a person. It ended up getting up and screaming. Me and my friend jumped back pretty far, and our bags hit the ground hard and ripped open, and out came our candy…All of it,” said student Marco Leal.
“By far my favorite Halloween costume when I was a kid was a Simba (from The Lion King) jumpsuit. I had the paws, tail, and everything. I think it was memorable to me because I wore it three Halloweens in a row and never got over how awesome it was! If it still fit, I would’ve planned on wearing it this Halloween,” said student Jonatan Ortega.
“I remember dressing up as a killer clown when I was 10 years old. I just chose the killer clown because I thought it would be fun, and it was memorable because that day, my cousins dressed like killer clowns as well, ” said student Joshua Ventura.
When we were kids, having a fun childhood meant that we would dress as anything we wanted to be. We loved to be whoever we wanted because our childhood was full of fun and happiness.
