9 Reasons Halloween Is the Best Holiday Ever

9 Reasons Halloween Is the Best Holiday Ever

7. Halloween parties AKA the Trifecta: costumes, candy, and friends.


Halloween is right around the corner and I could not be more excited! What is there not to love about Halloween? I mean really, try to think of something. See. You can't. That's because Halloween is seriously the best holiday ever.

1. Free candy, duh.

A broke college student's favorite thing: free food.

2. Halloween candy every meal for a month!

Resee's for breakfast, Milky Ways for lunch, and Skittles for dinner.

3. Costumes!

It's the one night a year when it's socially acceptable to be someone you're not.

4. Pumpkin everything.

Pumpkin carvings. Pumpkin patches. Pumpkin candles. Pumpkin decorations. Pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin muffins. Pumpkin pie. Pumpkin spice & everything nice.

5. Halloween movies.

You're a filthy liar if you say you don't rewatch Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, and the Nightmare Before Christmas.

6. You don't have to buy any presents.

Don't get me wrong, I love Christmas and I love giving presents. But when you're a broke college student, saving money on presents while still getting to celebrate with your friends is probably one of the best things ever.

7. Halloween parties.

AKA the Trifecta: costumes, candy, and friends.

8. It's the only time of year you actually WANT to be scared.

Whether you subject yourself to Haunted Houses or scary movies, it's the one time a year you're mentally prepared to be terrified.

9. You get to feel like a kid again.

Growing up sucks. But, on Halloween, you get to take a break from adulthood & relive your childhood, and be a kid for one night a year.

With the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic still surging in the United States, where we are averaging 50,000 cases daily, wearing a face mask has become even more important. Dr. Anthony Fauci, the nation's top infectious disease expert, has stressed the importance of wearing a mask and is pleading Americans to take notice of the "disturbing" rise in cases. It would be common sense to listen to him, considering we are dealing with a virus that has a mortality rate higher than what we have seen with other viruses.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.
