Out of all the seasons, my favorite is autumn. The leaves change colors, sweaters come out from their summer hibernation, and most importantly, Halloween! Every year as a kid I would look forward to going to Party City with my mom to pick out my halloween costume. I would usually go the cute route and not dress as something scary (see picture below). Dressing up is definitely one of the top reasons why Halloween is such a great holiday (shortly followed by candy, of course!).
Now, as a student at U of I, added onto the list of reasons why I love fall is Barn Dance! Because, nothing quite says “college in central Illinois” like going to a barn on a Saturday night and dancing around in the hay with your friends. Hillel’s Annual Halloween Barn Dance was the highlight of my semester last year and I cannot wait until next week to experience it all over again. If you haven’t signed up yet, you should - all you need is your best costume (or “barn apparel”), and $5! I hope to see you there!
Stay spooky, my friends!
