“Stop touching me!” Carlos screeched.

“Both of you stop. Get on your costumes, I will get your walkie-talkies. Now remember, you know going out of the neighborhood is outlawed and no going on the west side of the neighborhood. That’s the bad side,” Betty (the mom) said.

“Ok mom, we will be careful, by.” Molly said in her extremely high-pitched baby voice.

Betty gave Molly and Carlos each walkie-talkies and kept one for her self. She told them two switch to channel two. After they switched to channel two on the walkie-talkies they left. Immediately Molly and Carlos started getting candy.

“Hey, lets go to the west side woods,” Carlos said.

“No,  mother said we can’t go there,” Molly replied.

“Well were still going,” Carlos said.

Carlos and Molly started walking towards the west woods. After about ten minutes of walking they reached the woods. There was a danger sign but they ignored it. The woods were foggy and there was a full moon. Suddenly there was a cracking noise.

“What was that,” Molly said.

“I don’t know but lets keep going.” Carlos said.

Suddenly a monster jumped out behind a bush. Molly and Carlos started running home crying. When they arrived, they heard the back door open. Their mom walked in. Where were you guys. Carlos and Molly simply just walked to their rooms. They mom quietly put a monster costume in trash and went to bed.

While dressing up is an important part of Halloween, you might not want to this time. Drew Smith, the best trick-or-treater in his neighboorhood said, ” When my friends talk about what they are going to be for Halloween this year, I get worried because I heard a rumor, that on the year after 2010, everyone who dresses up on Halloween night turns into what they are dressed as forever. I am not going to dress up this year, just to be safe…”

However, Drew is still going to collect candy.

Evidence shows that a strange knight appears at midnight and taps you on the head with his sword and then you are change into whatever you were dressed up as forever.

One of the people in Drew’s neighborhood, Beth Jones is terrified. She said, “I heard a scream on Halloween last year, and a noise that sounded like a sword swishing down!”

A peice of advice for all of you trick-or-treaters out there, watch your back!

    The word Halloween originally came from the Middle English ‘Alholowmesse’ meaning “All Saints Day”. The night before Alholowmesse was called “All Hollows Even (evening)” which was eventually shortened to “Hallowe”en” till it just became “Halloween” in the 20th century.

Black Cats: good luck or bad luck?

One day you and some friends are on your way home from school and with all the talking you don’t see it at first. As you get closer you see it more clearly–the black cat! It sees you and runs in frunt of you. It has happened! A black cat has crossed your path!

Is it truly bad luck? 

King Charles I had a black that he vauled and protected. The day after the cat died, King Charles was arrested.

When sailors went to sea, their wives would keep a black cat to give their husbands good luck. Sometimes these cats were sold in markets.

In a place called Lincolnshire, a man and his son were walking on a night with no moon. They saw a small dark thing cross their path, but then it disappeared in a hole and they tossed stones at it. When the cat came out, it was a beat-up. The cat ran into the house that was thought to be a witch. When they saw the witch the next day, she was beat-up as well. From then on they thought black cats were witches in disguise.

In some places they tried to drive black cats to extinction. 

If you find one pure white hair in an all-black cat and pull it out without being scratched than you will have VERY good luck.

As you can see, there are a lot of things we are not sure of when it comes to black cats and luck.

The next day is Halloween and you tell your friends about the black cat. They want to know if something bad has happened to you. Nothing has yet…
