Happy Halloween, everybody! I know that technically it’s only September, but as an avid lover of Halloween, I don’t care. I couldn’t be more excited if I tried, as Halloween is by far the best holiday of the year. There’s so many things someone can do during this wonderful pumpkin-spiced time of the year!
A pair of lovers could go to the pumpkin patch together, best friends can run through a haunted corn maze, mothers and daughters can share a bag of candy corn, young sons can dress up as their favorite Marvel superhero, fathers can watch their favorite horror movies on TV, and of course everyone is now free to enjoy pumpkin spiced lattes from Starbucks. There is also something to be said for trick-or-treating on the magical night, even though you may now be a giver of the candy rather than a receiver. It’s so interesting to see how creative some people can get with their costumes, and how some couples or families manage to keep a group theme for costumes going.
Halloween is simply a time of year when people get the chance to be someone else, and yet somehow more themselves. There’s an aura of mystery in the air as people pick their costumes from the various figures they identify with and go with their loved ones to have a fun night. I would encourage all those currently reading to enjoy the excitement of Halloween and to keep an eye out for what you may choose for your costume this year!
Also, it is important to note that Student Activities will be hosting a Halloween Party for the students of Lewis and Clark Community College on Wednesday, Oct. 30 from 11 AM until 1 PM.
