I will carry on with the topic of today's blog entry: Halloween. I know where I am, both location wise and age wise many do not really know how to celebrate anymore since an age seems to have been put on going door-to-door in costume asking for candy. Here is a list of a few ways to celebrate this year:
1. Haunted House
Going through a tour at one of these haunted house attractions or something like Field of Screams (for those of you in the Lancaster area!) can be a good way to get a good fright for Halloween. Grab some friends and go through it together and see who the scaredy-cat is in the group.
2. Horror Film Marathon
Personally, I always go this route. I love the horror film genre (only the good, non-gorey stuff!) Go for the classics like "Frankenstein" or "Dracula." My personal favorites are the movies in the "Halloween" series. You can run as fast as you want, he'll always walk faster!
3. Costume Party
Throw a good, old-fashioned costume party with some friends! I love seeing all the scary, creative, and hilarious costumes people come up with. You can have a costume contest for the scariest, most creative, and worst costumes.
4. Ghost Tours
Whether you're a believer or not, a ghost tour can be really fun. While this is something that you might have to put in reservations for months in advance (Gettysburg ghost tours fill up fast!) they are historically informative and maybe you will even get lucky and experience something!
...and for those of us college students.....
5. Dorm Trick-or-Treat!
Don't let anyone stop you from dressing up and getting that candy! Organize a trick-or-treating event on your floor or, if you can, your whole building! You will get that Halloween experience we grew up loving and it is also a great social opportunity. If you live in a large dorm like I do, you don't know everyone. This is a cool opportunity to see everyone!
I have yet to decide how I will be spending my Halloween night but, I assure you, it will probably be one of the above or a bit of everything. :)
How will you spend your Halloween?
