Eleventh graders at The Columbus School annoyed Seniors on their last Halloween day by having many similar ideas, which ended in problems between some students.

Chivas, group costumes, and an after-party are all part of the festive tradition held by the twelfth-graders; however, this year, Juniors adopted these practices, too. It is believed by most twelfth-graders that Juniors stole their spotlight and ruined a long practiced tradition by using their same celebrations and costume ideas.

“We waited all of our lives to be Seniors and to have that important date, something only for the Seniors, and by someone else doing it, it stops being special. So I understand why my classmates were upset…,” Maria Londoño, Senior at TCS, said.

The entrance and matching costumes have been a Senior custom for many years now, and although it is true that Halloween is one of their most awaited days, there are no rules preventing other grades from doing similar things.

“They say we copied their ideas, like 21 of us dressing up of the same thing and going out of school in a chiva, but I don’t really care what they think, so I didn’t listen to what they said,” Catalina Vélez, Junior at TCS, said.

Many of the Seniors didn’t care, but the ones who did searched for a way to strike back. Instead of talking things out, and in desperate need of stopping Halloween from being “ruined”, they planned to pull pranks and make the Juniors, who were dressed as cheerleaders and football players, look bad.

“Some of my classmates, since they are not as mature as others, said that they were going to throw eggs at them. Some wanted to call them out at Halloweenwhich they actually did,” Londoño said.

At the end of the day, everyone had a terrific Halloween, and no pranks or bigger issues were caused in TCS. Being able to coexist is crucial in daily life such as overcoming difficulties, and differences.

“They thought we wanted to be them, and I am sure we don’t wanna be Seniors,” Vélez said.
