Halloween Is The Best Holiday & Fall Rocks And Nobody Can Change My Mind

There's no debate unfortunately so you can't argue with me.

Halloween is the best holiday hands down.

When you think of Halloween, one may think of crunching leaves, hot apple cider, and trips to the orchard. Others may think of spooky movies, scary haunted houses, and trick-or-treating. Others may even think of all the cool parties they get to go to. Regardless of what you love, the changing colors and crisp autumn air all make up for the fact that fall and, most importantly, Halloween is the best holiday. I'm going to wrap all these reasons up and tell you why Halloween is the best and fall rocks, no debate.

1. The changing colors

The changing colors as we shift to autumn are probably one of the things that make fall and Halloween the best holiday. When you think of Halloween, the colors of the spooky holiday match the outside world we live in. Seeing the leaves falling and the leaves going from a green to a crisp red or orange really make you stop and appreciate nature.

2. The movies

I may be bias here, but not only are horror movies amazing, but Halloween horror specials are what makes the holiday what it is. It's the one time of the year most of the population like to watch people getting chopped up or stalked. For me, that's all year round, but the emphasis during spooky season on these awesome movies make the holiday great.

3. Trips to the orchard

There's nothing greater than going to the pumpkin patch and picking up a big pumpkin or even picking fresh apples off the tree. Plus, the pumpkin doughnuts are pretty delicious, too.

4. Getting dressed up

Halloween lets you explore and play with the idea of being something else. Halloween is the one holiday after all where you can dress up as a nurse and not get judged for impersonating a medical professional.

5. The cooler weather

To me, there is nothing better than sweater weather. Fall is the one time of the year where you can fully dress in those cute sweaters that have been hiding in the back of your closet without hiding it underneath a puffy winter jacket.

6. Fall break

This may seem silly, but for stressed out college students fall break comes at a perfect time. Midterms aren't quite a thing yet, so we get to enjoy those few days off before the actual stress of exam prep really kills us.

7. Carving pumpkins

Although the majority of us probably stink at carving pumpkins, there is such a nostalgic feeling associated with getting a carving kit from the store, tracing a stencil on the pumpkin, and going to town taking out the guts.

8. Pumpkin everything

Although I cannot see the rage over pumpkin spice, I definitely will throw down for a piece of pumpkin pie. Halloween season is the one true time of year where you can get this practically anywhere and won't be judged for obsessing over everything pumpkin.

9. Candles

Another simple joy, but I personally think fall candles are definitely the best smelling candles. There is nothing better than sitting on the couch, wrapped in a knit blanket, smelling your favorite fall candle.

10. Fun times with friends

Whether that's going on a walk to appreciate the changing colors brought on by mother nature or getting all dressed up and going out, visiting a local haunted house, or getting all dressed up as a maid or a slice of pizza, fall and Halloween is a time where the best memories are made.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.
