As we continue with our classes, Halloween has come and gone. The holiday is highly anticapted by many, involving trick-or-treating and dressing up, but most people would say we are too old to do that. Thus, to reminisce about your previous Halloween memories, you could decorate your room, watch scary movies or even carve pumpkins on Halloween.
Decorations can range from homemade to store brought. If you don’t want to spend money on the decorations, printing off or sketching out Halloween shapes to cut out are the easiest options. These can be taped up inside or outside a dorm room; it’s a great way to hang out together with friends. If you do not want to spend time making decorations, Halloween signs or cobwebs (fake or real!) can make your dorm room festive. No matter what kind of decorations you have, it will make the evening fun.
Depending on whether or not scary movies are your thing, there are many non-scary Halloween movies that can be watched. “Goosebumps” is based on the chapter books by R.L. Stine. It is a film that will not scare your friends but will be funny to criticize the supposedly scary parts of the movie. For the people that like scary movies, “The Cabin in the Woods,” “Carrie,” “The Exorcism” or “The Shining” will keep you up at night.
If you want to go traditonal, carving pumpkins or painting them is inexpensive and fun. Using your imagination, you can create an awesome pumpkin to show your friend, or have a pumpkin-carving party to add to your Halloween fun. No matter what you do this Halloween, make sure to stay safe and have fun. Happy Halloween!
