5 Reasons Why Halloween Season Is The Best Time Of Year

5 Reasons Why Halloween Season Is The Best Time Of Year


Ahh, yes, that wonderful period between September and the end of November, most commonly referred to as fall, but we all know that it revolves around Halloween because it’s the first major holiday right after Independence Day. Yeah, summer is great and all because of the freedom it allows you, but let’s face it, it way too hot for anyone who doesn’t live in Antarctica to enjoy it. So I’m going to give you the top 5 reasons why fall is #1!

1. Halloween!

Well obviously Halloween is the best part of Halloween season. Who doesn’t love dressing up in fun or horrific costumes? And it’s completely acceptable all October long! Or is that just me? Plus candy! And everyone loves a great Halloween party!

2. Pumpkin patches, haunted houses, and corn mazes!

Pumpkin patches were legit the best part of October in elementary school. Running through the patch and fighting over the biggest pumpkin was the best way to establish friendships, am’I’right? Haunted houses and attractions are always a thing to look forward to, especially if you love being scared and are an adrenaline junkie like me; it’s really the best part of Halloween! Corn mazes go along with pumpkin patches, especially when we had those falls festivals in elementary school. You know, the ones with the hay rides and the big bouncy slide. It’s always great to get lost in a (designated) corn maze and try to find your way out of it.

3. Cool weather

I live in Alabama, so if you step foot outside on a July afternoon, be ready to have your face shrivel up. A southern summer is no joke, so when the cool weather starts coming in, it’s glorious! It’s nice and crisp, and it gives you a feeling that you can’t describe, like a feeling of renewal- even though everything starts dying! It’s the perfect weather to spend your day in, and the chilly nights are great for fires and hoodies. And since it’s colder, you don’t have to worry about having your swimsuit body! The cold weather also makes all of those pesky bugs, such as mosquitoes and wasps, return back to whatever horrific dimension they spawn from.

4. All of the colors

When fall hits and leaves begin to change colors, forget a winter wonderland, I’ll take all the shades of Autumn instead. Nothing is better than driving down a road and seeing all of the different shades of red, yellow, and orange. And when they start to fall, it’s always fun to walk on them and hear that nice crunch.

5. Turkey Day

And last but certainly not least are the holidays. We’ve already covered that Halloween is simply the best, but another great holiday is Thanksgiving! When you have all of your family and friends gathered around (with no drama!), there is just no other place you’d rather be.

So there you have it, a list of why I believe that fall (AKA Halloween season) is the best time of year. And I’m sure that most of y’all agree.

11 Things I, A Salty Non-Irish Woman, Will Be Doing On St. Patrick's Day

Speaking in a Scottish accent to tick all of the Irish people off.

I am a wonderful combination of European backgrounds. I haven't run an ancestry check or anything, but I am at least half Swiss and a little over a quarter German. Heck, I'm even sure I've got some British Isles in there. But that comes in the form of English and Scottish. (The horror! I've been mixed!)

Irish? Nah. I don't have a whole heck of a lot of it.

I mean, I can do a mean Irish accent. But that's the extent of my association with the Emerald Isle. So on St. Paddy's Day, I'm a little displaced. What, exactly are we doing with ourselves when we aren't possessed of a massive amount of green in our wardrobe, nor are we really even sure why this holiday is celebrated? Let me show you.

(Note: Quiet, Church History class that I took that one time. I know it's to celebrate St. Patrick bringing the Gospel to Ireland. Details.)

1. Actively avoiding getting pinched

2. Speaking in a Scottish accent to tick all of the Irish people off

3. Desperately searching for anything green to wear

4. Wondering what actually happened with the snakes in Ireland.

5. Watching a lot of Lutheran Satire

6. Praying for the delivery of an Irish boy to my doorstep

7. Making potato pancakes because I'm German, dang it, not Irish!

8. Tackling every redhead I see, screaming, "Look, a leprechaun!"

9. Apologizing to my now slightly bruised roommate, who is most likely not a leprechaun.

10. Going to a St. Patrick's Day party and delivering William Wallace's freedom speech. On a horse.

11. Realizing just how seriously the Irish take this holiday as they take me up on that previous offer.

Scotland forever. Or Switzerland. Or wherever.

5 Reasons I'm SO Over Winter, And SO Ready For Summer To Get Here Already

Summer needs to hurry up into my life.

For those of us unfortunate souls who live in New York during the winter, we know just how brutal it can get. It's freezing one day, warm the next, and blizzard conditions after that. Its not until basically June that we finally are lucky enough to get the truly warm, beautiful weather that we crave for all year long.

Summer time.

Here are a few reasons why I'm so ready for summer:

1. Clothes

This might just be me, but I feel about 100 times uglier in the winter. I'm literally always cold, so all I want to wear is sweats. All. The. Time. Now, this is definitely not a cute look. In the Summer, you have a lot more versatility in what you can wear. You can wear skirts, dresses, shorts, tees, tanks, sneakers, sandals, you name it. There's significantly more options. Not to mention, summer clothes are way cuter than winter clothes in general. I am so ready to not look homeless every day, just saying.

2. Tanning

Warm weather means tanning weather! YAY. Well, tan for me is not very dark since I'm basically ghostly pale in the winter. But, color is color! Not to mention, nothing says summer like laying out by the beach on a breezy day with the sun beating down on your skin.

3. Free time

Any college student will tell you that life is pretty hectic during the school year. Between activities, class, homework, and part-time work, it's hard to find a moment to breathe. But, fear not! Summer is coming, and that means we can finally have a few months to relax. We deserve it.

4. Beach/city trips

Living on Long Island in the summer is truly a blessing in disguise. We are lucky enough to be literally surrounded by water. This means we have a ton of beaches to choose from throughout the season that are not too far from home. Also, our location puts us about an hour away from the greatest city in the world, New York! Summer in New York City is one of my favorite things ever, and I cannot wait to do some more exploring once the warm weather hits.

5. Nice weather

As I mentioned earlier, New York winters are pretty brutal. Nor'easter after Nor'easter after Nor'easter. Everyone has just about had enough of it. I know I'm over here counting down the days until I can feel warm again and not have to worry about snow ruining my day! Warm weather needs to enter my life ASAP.
