Cobwebs on front porches, jack-o-lanterns illuminating in yards, bulk candy sales, haunted house advertisements…Yep, it’s that time of year again when you see, hear, and taste Halloween all around you. Such decorations are seen on campus at this time as well. And, Fontbonne is hosting a Halloween event, the annual Fall Fest, this Thursday October 25. In addition to dressing up and competing in a costume contest, there will be other fun activities, such as apple bobbing and pumpkin carving. All Fontbonne students are welcome 7-10 in the meadow and AMC!
Every year around this time, I take a trip down memory lane and try to remember most of my previous costumes. Here it goes: clock, angel, smiley face (home-made), cowgirl, soccer player, witch, hippie, Marilyn Monroe, Harajuku girl, Cindy Lou Hou, ice princess, playing card from Alice in Wonderland, Maleficent, Pocahontas, Belle, and Lola from Hannah Montana. (Do you sense a Disney theme?) This year I’m going to be Rapunzel! She is my favorite princess.
What are some of your favorite costumes? Whatever you decide to do this week and next to celebrate Halloween, be safe and have fun. Enjoy all the candy!
