Alone on Halloween: What to do

Alone on Halloween: What to do

Brooklynn Crowley

Halloween is a time of the year filled with skeletons and ghouls galore, and for many this is not a holiday very celebrated. Perhaps plans fell through due to the pandemic this year, or perhaps this time of year just isn’t what they look forward to. However, there are many options for those who still don’t have plans so close to the holiday.

“Halloween is one of my personal favorite holiday. I know it may sound crazy, but I grew up off of scary movies and it’s just something I am used to. Most people don’t enjoy this time of year, but it’s almost reliving my childhood. Every year my family does all the traditional things like pumpkin carvings and handing out treats, but we also pride ourselves in hosting a Halloween party. Of course we will need to make adjustments due to COVID though.” – Cheyenne Baptist

Like Cheyenne said, there are regular traditions that many indulge in this time of year such as handing out tasty treats, carving pumpkins, dressing up in costume, trick-or-treating, and so much more!

For those who have friends and/or family to spend the season with, there are always fun activities available like a group movie night to watch scary films, going out to eat, dressing up altogether, corn mazes, haunted houses, and everything/anything else around.

For those who do not have a group to go with, you are more than welcome to do any of those activities on your own. Movie nights are fun regardless of who is or is not with you, just don’t forget to treat yourself to good food and snacks. Dressing up is always an option, and it makes it way more fun to hand out candy as trick-or-treaters come knocking at your door.

Some seasonal movies to watch are the corpse bride, nightmare before Christmas, the twilight zone, the Adams family, and plenty more depending on what your legal guardian says is good for you to watch.

The night is yours, so make the most of it and stay safe out there!
