As a kid, your Latinx parents' strictness probably came out tenfold during Halloween. We were allowed to dress up, but only as whatever our moms wanted us to go as (or in whatever hand-me-down costume we got from older cousins). We were allowed to eat some candy, but never baked goods and never (ever!) too much of anything. We could hear family members' scary ghost stories, but forget about having a sleepover to watch horror films.
