Halloween

Well, there’s only 12 days until Halloween. And I’m looking forward to every minute of it.  Halloween is my favorite holiday; Christmas runs in a close second. I love everything from the scary props to the awesome costumes. Even ABC Family’s 13 Nights of Halloween. Since Halloween is the one time a year where you can dress up as whatever you want, I always spend a lot of time deciding what I want to be. I always try to be a little unique since I don’t want to be one of five others in the same costume. Last year I was the Queen of Hearts from Alice in Wonderland. I found  different version I liked than the one from the Disney movie.

I think Iowa Western should have a Halloween Party. I know they have one for the children of students and faculty, but I think the students could have one, too. With costume contests, maybe a dance. but that’s my opinion. It could be fun.

Tonight starts off the 13 Nights of Halloween with the Goonies! Hope you’ll be watching!


Autumn

So fall is officially upon us…though there are days where it doesn’t feel like it. The leaves are changing color, the days are getting shorter. Fall isn’t necessarily my favorite time of the year, but I like the change from really hot days to something more comfortable. It’s definitely the most colorful time of the year.

But anything I look forward to the most in the fall is Halloween. Halloween is my favorite holiday of the year, with Christmas running in a close second. I love dressing up as someone/something I like. It’s really fun to be something else for a day (or in this case, night). I also enjoy going to Manglesen’s or Nobbies to check out all their creepy stuff. A new store opened up this year in Omaha, Spirit Halloween.  It’s just down the street from Manglesen’s…84th and Center. I recommend it to anyone looking for somewhere new.  They have a great selection of costumes, makeup, costume accessories and decorations. The staff there is great, too. They’re really friendly.

But I’m kinda disappointed that Halloween is on a Sunday this year; no staying out late. 😦 But I’m betting people are going to do their Halloween parties and such the day before. Can’t blame them!

Til next time!
