Halloween is my favorite holiday

It’s the most wonderful time of the year…aka HALLOWEEN! It’s my favorite holiday and I’ve decided to put together a list of all the reasons why Halloween is the best holiday. Put on a scary movie (or even some scary background music) and settle in to read about the spookiest and most fun holiday out there!

 1. The weather

It all starts with the autumn weather. The falling red, orange, and yellow leaves, the crunch of them underneath your feet. The crisp autumn air as it begins to get colder, the smell of fireplaces burning. It all adds up to one thing, Halloween is getting close!

 2. Costumes and parties

Who didn’t love dressing up as a child and pretending to be someone from a galaxy far, far away? Or maybe a Disney princess or your favorite cartoon character. Halloween comes along every year, and it becomes okay again to dress up and have fun. It gives you the chance to be something we’re not and escape our everyday life. Even better is showing off your costume at a Halloween party with friends.

3. The decorations

Scary or fun? Cute or gruesome? From fake cobwebs to animatronics and inflatables, there are so many different ways you could go with Halloween decorations. I love to go all out with Halloween decorations, the scarier the better. I will always be that house that will hopefully creep you out every time you walk by at night. Seeing someone jump or scream as a spider leaps out of them is how I know I’ve done a good job.

4. Scary movies

While it’s always okay to watch horror films year-round, you’ll still get some strange looks when you suggest a horror movie to watch with friends. Around Halloween though, it’s completely acceptable and encouraged! People want ghosts, they want scary clowns, they want creepy children and dolls! There’s no better way to get in the Halloween holiday spirit than by turning off the lights, getting some snacks, some friends to scream and jump with, and putting on a scary movie.

Watch “The Witch” with us!

This year ASYVC wants to share those screams with you by watching The Witch on October 28 from 6:30 p.m. – 8:30 p.m. The Witch follows a family in the year 1630, they move to a New England farmhouse that sits next to a forest that may be controlled by witches. Almost immediately, strange things start to happen. Come join us to find out what scary things happen to them. Happy Halloween from Student Government!
