  1. Halloween is my favorite holiday, mostly because I love to get dressed up and for the overall theatrics that come with Halloween. This year I definitely saw a lot of Harley Quinn’s and Eleven’s. I would love to see a bit more variation next year, and more originality. It seems that a lot more people got dressed up this year, but I’m not sure if it made the holiday more “festive”. I was actually surprised that people still give out candy, I surely didn’t receive any.

  2. I love Halloween and especially loved it this year at Drexel. I loved seeing everyone all dressed up, and I loved dressing up myself! I actually saw a lot of those costumes and would have loved to see more cute group costumes.
