Ayads Ethos Pathos Logos
Blended Response Growing up I have a vivid memory of my mother's face as she spoke to me about
the dangers of misperceiving. It was actually on the day of halloween. It is traditional for people to
hand out candy and chocolate to trick or treaters. However, my mother checked every individual
candy before handing them back to me. After this I asked her why she had checked them, what
could possibly be wrong with free candy thought my 6 year old mind. She told me that even though
the candy looked like nothing more than candy, people often filled them with things they are not
supposed too. That it was dangerous to assume every candy was edible. This taught me the dangers
of misperceiving and caused me to pay more attention to situations and not just relying on the
information in front of me. In an Ayads essay, "The Capricious Camera" she explores that idea; what
we detect isn't always what we receive. In Ayads essay she uses logos, ethos and pathos to support
her core thought. These are all very successful and consistent throughout her paper. She is able to
provide facts and research to support her claim, all while remaining passionate and credible in the
issue. ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...
Ayads logos is also supported by her background growing up in Columbia, Maryland. The author
describes Columbia, Maryland as a "...planned community based on ideals of racial, social, and
economic diversity and balance." (Ayad 387) This would allow the author to already be educated on
the topics of different social classes and people of different ethnicities working together to create a
balance. This information is important because it provides us with knowledge that the author will
not be biased in her angle of vision due to her exposure to racial and economic

the Halloween celebration and what are the people traditions with this holiday. Indeed, this is the

Many people have grown to love Beistle Halloween stuff over the years. And many a crafter has taken the inspiration that he/ she got from this company dedicated to Halloween. What are vintage halloween decorations from the Beistle company? These vintage decorations and collectibles played an important role in Halloweens past. These items were usually cutouts of black cats, witches, carved pumpkins, and other Halloween motifs. The Beistle Company got its start at the turn of the last century. Much of the vintage design sensibilities that made the company popular then still exist today. These Beistle Halloween designs look like ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ...

  • 17. Halloween: The Spooky, The Slutty And The Matching Halloween is a favorite holiday to celebrate by many of all different ages. Halloween gives children a chance to dress up as whoever they desire to be, while receiving some of their favorite treats. Even as adults, they like to carry the tradition of dressing up for Halloween. Since trick–or–treating is not an appropriate thing to do as an adult, during this time of the year, many Halloween parties are held. However, at these parties, the costumes are not typically like the ones they wore as children. There are three types of costumes that one can see at a Halloween party: The Spooky, the Slutty, and the Matching. Halloween originated as a time to remember the dead. Some take this aspect of Halloween very seriously. This brings the first type of costume at a party, the Spooky. These can be zombies, vampires, witches, mummies, Frankenstein, and of course creepy ... Show more content on Helpwriting.net ... Halloween is a time of year one can dress as provocative as they please in public, and no judgement will be passed. This brings the second type of Halloween costume to be seen at a party, which is the Slutty. These are made into just about anything someone wants to be. Common in the Slutty category is a nurse, a cop, French maid, and some type of animal. At these parties, it's guaranteed to see at least one of these being worn. The Slutty animals are usually hard to differentiate which animal they are actually supposed to be. With these they are wearing some form of animal ears, maybe a tail, and face painting; which will be a black nose or whiskers. These can be worn with a dress or the riskier animals just have some form of lingerie. The slutty costumes are most commonly seen in women, but men can also be in this category. Men try to be more discrete about it, but when they are walking around the party with no shirt on, everyone knows what they are ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 21. Personal Narrative: A Day Before Halloween I woke up with gusto! It was the day before Halloween, and I still haven't found a costume yet. I was becoming anxious. My mother was working, and my sister was asleep. I was sure my dad was at work too, but he was always gone. I began to think. " Am I going trick or treating?" I wanted to be a dog for Halloween, so I was hoping Walmart would have it. It was already 10a.m. I meandered to the bedroom, hoping that when I opened the door, I would find Shaniah and Kyree awake. I opened the door and spoke. " Shaniah are you up?" I queried. There was no reply. I began to lose hope. It was now 4:15 pm, and I still haven't gone to Walmart. Today, however, we were supposed to get our costumes. I looked around the room, which smelled like cherries, ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
  • 25. Gender Stereotyping In Halloween With Halloween, just around the corner many parents and kids are trying to find what costume suits them. During this time of year, we see gender stereotyping a lot. Gender stereotyping is a generalized belief about what characteristics and quality one should have base on their gender (An Exploration of Gender Stereotypes in Perception and Practice of Leadership). More and more we are seeing this in everyday things. For example, girls are portrayed as the cheerleader while the boys are the football players. Gender Stereotyping can cause a lot of psychological damage to someone. I have done my own observations to better understand how gender stereotyping is involved in the media during Halloween. For the entire month of October, all you see on tv, magazines, newspapers, billboards, posters etc. are sales for costumes since Halloween is at the end of the month. I have noticed that all the costumes in the advertisements are very stereotypical. The girls are dressed up like princesses and fairies while the boys are dressed up like superheroes and pirates. When you go to a store where they sell costume like Target and Party City all you see are aisles full of parents and children scrambling to find a costume. I noticed that many parents pick costumes for their children even if they are old enough to pick one out. The parents always go for the most popular and most stereotypical ones. For example, this year, costumes that are very popular are marvel avengers for boys and Disney ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

The first way that colonists started to see a difference was the formation of the First Continental Congress in 1774. This group responded to the Intolerable Acts that were issued as a result of the Boston Tea Party. The colonists wanted the acts repealed so a letter was written to the king to ask him to do so (Party). The group also adopted the Articles of Association. Within these articles, a boycott of British goods and a refusal to send exports to Britain would be started if the Intolerable Acts were not cancelled (Caravantes 9). In addition to the First Continental Congress being formed, a short term change that occurred was the Boston Port Act. This act declared the Boston harbor to remain closed until the costs of the tea destroyed was accounted for. In total, there was about 92,000 pounds on tea damaged in the protests. This amount of tea equates to about one million dollars (Party, 10). Britain passed the Boston Port Act to punish the colonies in general but Boston for the most part. Britain also wanted to express their power over the colonies due to the appearance of chaos in the colonies. This chaos brought the thought that Britain did not have complete control over the colonies and soon the colonies would no longer be under British reign. Besides the Boston Port Act, Britain passed the Coercive Acts. The colonists disliked the actions of Parliament and war began to look inevitable (Party). On the contrary, there was a bigger affair to come from the Boston Tea Party. This affair was the American Revolution as a whole. The tea party was the first act of defiance by the colonists and as an outcome, colonists began to feel the change of heart that said independence was possible. The king became angry when he found out that the money for the tea was not going to be received because the colonists declared their want for freedom (Klingel 7). On April 19, ...

  • 65. Cultural Appropriation And Its Effect On Society In America, and throughout the world, there are numerous conversations being had about race and its role in society today. Everywhere you look, in every news story and Facebook status, there is an ongoing debate regarding race and inequality. One of these major discussions regards cultural appropriation, which is an infamous problem around Halloween. Many individuals are confused by this concept of appropriating culture simply because they cannot distinguish the line between appreciation and appropriation. Thus, these blurred lines lead to offending cultures as well as perpetuating privileges and disadvantages within society. Cultural appropriation, often defined as an "adoption of elements of one culture by members of the dominant culture," is a major issue of race inequality in the world, especially within the United States (Bollinger). Appropriation occurs when an individual from a dominant culture adapts elements and aspects of another culture into their own, in an often demeaning way; thus, forcefully putting that culture below them within society. This social concept is often hard for the average, unaware individual to identify because it frequently comes from a place of ignorance. Oftentimes, individuals believe that they are appreciating a culture by emulating it when their actions are, in fact, offensive to the people of that culture. This is why the social phenomenon continues to be perpetuated (____). Furthermore, cultural appropriation comes in a variety of ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

Examples Of Halloween Costume : Multicultural Appropriation Halloween costume: multicultural appropriation Racial discrimination and stereotypes are a couple of many huge social problems in our society we can refrain from as a gesture of value and respect for one's culture and identity. Racism is a form of oppression: prejudice, discrimination, or antagonism directed against someone of different race based on the belief that one's own race is superior (Oxford University Press, 2017) This character has been visibly demonstrated in workplaces, schools and campuses, in the community, government agencies, and even at home. The roots of racism took place at the end of the 16th century when slave trade from Africa to Britain and America (Steven, 2006) This, then, divided people into races, hence, concluded Africans were an inferior race. Although black slavery has been ended in 1865 (Faces, 2013), slavery hasn't really ended (this would be a separate topic for another time) White supremacy never ceases to end over the centuries.

Scottish and Irish immigrants in the U.S. during the 18th and 19th centuries brought their Halloween folklore and traditions with them, which mixed in with the folklore, traditions and superstitions of other immigrants from Germany, Haiti and the Netherlands ("The History"). Borrowing from Irish and English traditions, Americans began to dress up in costumes and go house to house asking for food or money. Over time this tradition turned in to today modern "trick or treating". In the late 1800s, America turned Halloween into a holiday more about community and neighborly get–togethers than about ghosts, and witchcraft. As the centuries changed Halloween parties for both children and adults became the most common way to celebrate the day. Parties focused on games, foods of the season and festive costumes.

In the essay "It is Time to Stop Playing Indians" by Arlene Hirschfelder, her main point explains that it is wrong to use Indian cultural references, such as names associated with holidays like Halloween and Thanksgiving and sports like Football and Baseball. This argument is not valid today, because it was written in 1987 and also because of the fact that sport teams names are famous the fans are very devoted, holidays are a huge part of American culture, and Indian stereotypes like many others won't go away. First, sports teams are famous for their team names such as the "Braves" "Redskins" and the "Chiefs". There is too much history behind the names for them to be changed because of the events that happened in history. Also, fall and winter are the seasons when the sports fans are rooting for their favorite teams, if the names were to be changed that would cause a tremendous issue in America because millions of Americans love sports and it is a tradition within families. Even though the names are offensive to Native Americans there are billions of dollars invested in team names. As Hirschfelder states, "War–whooping team mascots are imprinted on school uniforms, postcards, notebooks, tote bags and car floors mats."(218) Those merchandise costs a lot of money, and people are okay with it because they sell and that is entertainment.

Since the ancient Celts thought the nonliving roamed the earth, they created costumes out of animal pelts to ward off evil spirits. Fortunetelling and the utilization of large bonfires for sacrifices and purification were also early customs. After the Christianization of the holiday to commemorate saints and martyrs, the same festivities, bonfires, and guising remained, but October 31st was renamed All–Hallows Eve. This inevitably turned into Halloween. Similar to European traditions, America's Halloween has also evolved throughout the years. Halloween's recognition was originally restricted in colonial America due to its non–Christian beliefs and practices, and it was practiced at a more local level. According to an online source, "The first celebrations included 'play parties,' public events held to celebrate the harvest, where neighbors would share stories of the dead and tell each other's fortunes, dance, and sing" ("History of Halloween"). Festivities were akin to European traditions, but also included ghost stories and pranking. Beginning in the twentieth century, Halloween ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...

  • 121. Essay on My Childhood Memories: Halloween Halloween has always been my favorite holiday and each year brings new experiences that make me love it even more. My first memory of Halloween is the costume I went out trick or treating with my grandmother, who lived 500 miles away. She made me a homemade costume that I wish I still had today. The costume was supposed to be a butterfly. It was purple with butterfly–like markings on the body, wings and antennas, and it engulfed my small, child–size body the second I put it on. I remember hating that costume, but today I would kill to have it. It was so unique, so one of a kind. The next memory I have, I went as a typical witch after demanding to be one.

I loved the festiveness, the candy, the tradition, but most of all the costumes. My high school had a contest every year around Halloween time for the best costume. I was determined to win this contest so each year I worked harder on my outfit. My freshman year I went as a barrel of monkeys, which went over really well. I won that year. The following year I went as a Christmas tree and lost to another girl. She had a great costume––a cup of Kraft's Easy Mac. The next year I didn't enter the contest because I didn't have my costume together in time. For my senior year, I took inspiration from one of my favorite film series: Toy Story. I wanted to go as my favorite character, Mrs. Potato Head. I made the eyes, nose and other parts of her body with Crayola modeling clay. I worked hard on molding the pieces and making sure I got them just right. After I was satisfied, I painted them. For the body I got thin, flexible foam. I put cheap brown cloth found anywhere that sells fabric, and I sewed it on. I did the same thing with the ears except for making them a lighter color. The costume had armholes and leg holes. On the face of the costume I put some pink blush to make her look more feminine. After I completed my costume I tried it on. I wore pink boots and a pink purse as accessories.

  • 125. Halloween Character Analysis Professor and vice dean at the University of Miami School of Law Osamudia James' commentary "Can a white child dress as a Halloween character from another race" addresses (discusses, whines about, addresses) the now–controversial topic (issue) of appropriating another race or culture's (appearance). James argues that an acceptable costume depends on avoiding stereotypes, discrimination, and white supremacy. (I agree with James about avoiding white supremacy and discrimination, but I found it very hard to picture a costume which does not make (use of stereotypes) in one way or another.) Ideally, a person would avoid white supremacy and discrimination (redundant) in choosing his costume, but I find it very hard to picture a costume which does not make use of stereotypes in one way or another. Somehow, she (manages to relate) relates white supremacy to Halloween in (for no reason) (an unrelated ) (a maniacal) manner. Her point might make sense if children regularly get upset over Halloween costumes, but she gives no examples which prove they do. Throughout the paper James mystifies the reader and makes false (untrue) statements which do not adhere to regular (normal) logic. With(another word?) hollow or false points, James provides a list of rules to follow to insure a person offends no one. (state my position in a contrasting thesis) Without stereotypes, we have nothing on which to base Halloween costumes. Stereotypes help give an idea on how a costume might constitute as ...

The belief in the afterlife involved with this holiday is very similar to that of the mesoamericans. The aztecs in particular had a month long celebration, very similar to that of Day of the Dead, in which they honored and delivered offerings to the deceased. When the spaniards arrived they did a fair job of popularizing their faith among the mesoamericans. The mesoamericans moved their month long celebration of death to coincide with the catholic holidays of All Saints and All Souls(November 1st and 2nd). Today, Day of the Dead is about celebrating death by creating altars carpeted with offerings to the souls of loved ones. Today, an iconic symbol of Día de los Muertos is the skeleton, one of the most significant skeleton characters is La Catrina. Day of the Dead is now picking up bits and pieces of Halloween tradition. Children are now participating in pedir los muertos, or ask the dead, during which children dress in costumes and meander, receiving candy as well as things from people's day of the dead altars, in some places.

Things take a strange turn, however, when all the Halloween candy begins to mysteriously disappear. Written, directed and starring Cameron Chaney, Trick and Treat is a no–budget, Halloween–set short film that, as most shorts of its ilk, features a simple but fun premise.

  • 141. Argumentative Essay On Halloween Costumes In recent years, Halloween costumes have created controversy because they touch on the issue of cultural appropriation. Children are simply not aware of how their costumes can unwittingly offend certain cultures or ethnic groups, and parents are also often unsure as to which costume ideas qualify as "culturally respectful". In the LA Times opinion editorial, "On Halloween, parents have no choice but to wade into fraught cultural politics," Oppenheimer argues that picking a Halloween costume is a challenging task with many grey areas as to what is considered offensive to various religious or ethnic groups who are often the inspiration behind Halloween costumes. He asserts that all individuals should take care to avoid culturally appropriating, but that there are also grey areas in costume choice where appropriation isn't as clearly defined. In order to illustrate the nuanced challenge of picking costumes, Oppenheimer utilizes an anecdote to show how societal values have changed within his lifetime. He shares, "When I was 10, I was in love with a musical theater; if you'd forced me to dress up for Halloween, I might have been chosen a character from 'Dreamgirls,' a play about African Americans" (Oppenheimer 3). It is evident that he was not aware of what was socially acceptable in society being that he was merely 10 years old. Considering that much time has passed, by reflecting back to his past self, he is able to realize that dressing this way could have touched many sensitive areas of cultural appropriating a race. As there are no specific set of standards established in society, individuals follow and adhere to what is presented in front of them. It is utterly challenging for all individuals to identify what is permitted in society despite the diversity in ethnic groups and age. While the youths are struggling to find the perfect balance to avoid cultural appropriating a group, it is also difficult for adults to distinguish the difference. To advise the individuals in recognizing the difference in regards to the significance of certain Halloween costumes, Oppenheimer utilizes an appeal to authority with an Yale scholar and former preschool teacher, Erika Christakis. It is ideal that, "...when it comes to the ... Get more on HelpWriting.net ...
