FLASHBACK: The spirit of Halloween is ageless


Teachers led children from the Childhood Development Center around the University to gather treats on Halloween. | 1977/The Daily Cougar.

It’s no trick, these children from the Childhood Development Center found out, as reported by The Daily Cougar on Nov. 1, 1977. Their teachers took them trick or treating around the UH campus on Halloween.

Halloween is a time for candy, costumes and fun. The love and excitement for Halloween is ingrained from a young age and is shared across cultures and ages. From going door-to-door as a child, soliciting sugary treats from strangers, to elaborate parties into the teen and adult years, Halloween adapts and grows as its participants change with time. Though the holiday seems to have encouraged an array of unique and interesting adult costumes, it’s not only adults that enjoy the spirit of the season. At the University, children, too, have been engaged in the spirit of the season and have enjoyed trick-or-treating in costume.
