It is people like my brother who are the reason why I never went to school on Hallowe'en.
I don't know what possesses people to egg on Hallowe'en myself. I've never approved of the practice, finding it unnecessarily barbaric, but it gave me a great reason to skip school with all of my friends, so I guess I shouldn't complain too much. I only revealed this truancy to my mother a few days ago, and she was shocked. I don't really know why, it wasn't like I was a grade one student or anything... although the fact that I didn't go to school on Hallowe'en throughout junior high and high school didn't effect me in the long run (the principal of Cardozo actually attempted to have teachers all give quizzes on Hallowe'en, which they all did and promptly didn't count), so there's no harm, no foul.
