Something that is not often thought about when banning a book, is the culture you’re throwing away with it. Using the same example of “The Great Gatsby” being banned, every young adult misses out on learning about the culture of the roaring twenties. There are other books that could teach high school students about the culture of that time period, but none can do it quite as good as “The Great Gatsby”. It is such a classic, that even if you haven't read the book or watched the movie yourself, you still know what it is, kinda like the Titanic. During the roaring twenties it was all jazz, parties and wealth.

Sweets are even available for the children, what could a child wish for more than a sugar skull? This is a skull made of sugar, what a happy memory to remember the dead by!

Most of the research came from websites that we looked up online such as www.smithsonian.com and www.history.com. However, even though we did have a rather smooth research, we encountered some bumpy milestones. At the beginning of the project all three of us took on jobs that we were quite knowledgeable of; soon after, our typer of the process paper had writer’s block and had to switch with the

But reviews are mixed, and each person's experience seems to be different depending on the actors they ran into. It sounds like all of the mazes were a great success and will definitely carry on for many years of Horror Nights!
