A Halloween-Related Example of Social Fact

Demonstrate your grasp of key sociological concepts by finding examples online that help to illustrate sociological concepts based on a set of ‘scavenger hunt tasks.

Halloween is arguably a time of year when a number of social facts normally in force lose some of their weight or influence upon us. Find a Halloween-related example where some social fact appears to be weakened or suspended at this time. Be sure to explain the concept of social fact by drawing on the Emile studies. Your example in the case should be something like a news story, an opinion piece, an image, a gif, a meme, a blog post, a tweet/Twitter thread, or a clip from a film/series that can be viewed on Netflix, or a short video (i.e., some kind of online content), but not an excerpt from an academic journal article, police report, or book.
