This past week has been full of Halloween festivities. Last weekend was the weekend Halloween dance and costume contest in Memorial Hall.
Prior to the dance, my mod and some additional friends went to a pumpkin patch where we did many fun things including playing in a “corn pit” (like sand just with corn kernels) and making a train down a long slide After we had our fun at the pumpkin patch we went to one of my modmates houses to carve pumpkins and have dinner. We had a wonderful time and after we were all full of good food and good conversation we headed back to Bethel so that we could get ready for the Halloween dance and costume contest!
At the dance, this years contest in my opinion was the most creative of my Bethel career yet. We had Zipperfaced Zombies, the Disney movie Aladdin cast, a rainbow with a pot of gold (my mod + Bree), Miley Cyrus, Mario Kart characters, and many many more. The dance ended this weekend of fun.
However, the Halloween fun wasn’t over yet! On alloween day, our mod participated in “trick-or-treat off the
street.” This is where the mods or rooms that want to participate have a pumpkin decoration outside of their door and people from the community can come to campus to trick-or-treat. Whoever has the pumpkin by there door has candy! My mod decorated our door and played Halloween music out into the courtyard for the occasion. It was so much fun to see all the kids in their costumes!
So to summarize, it was a great week full of fun and festivities, but now it is back to the books for me!
