This year Halloween falls on a Monday, the most dreaded day of the week. Not only is this awkward because you have school or work the next day, it is also hard to celebrate a holiday on the first day of the week. But here are some fun ideas on how to celebrate Halloween on a Monday:
If you are even somewhat responsible, you probably guessed that binge drinking and partying until 3 a.m. are out of the question on a Monday night. How about a fun party that doesn’t leave you confused, hung over, and late for work on Tuesday morning? To accomplish this all you need are friends and some kind of residence.
First of all, check out this website for all sorts of fun and unique Halloween candy ideas. From cookies to cakes to brownies, you are sure to find a great recipe there. If you are less into sweets and more into substantial meals, you can of course always just cook a delicious, wholesome, and healthy meal for your guests. I just prefer to indulge my sweet tooth on the 31st.
Feel free to make as many recipes as you want. No one is going to complain about having too many candy options on Halloween. If you’re on a college budget, try recommending that each guest bring a different candy dish. This is also a fun way to get your guests involved and excited.
Next, you need to get the gang together! Make a Facebook Event Page, a mass text, a phone call list, or a Google Circle. No matter how you choose to do it, just get everyone together in one place, and let them know when to meet at your “residence,” whether that is a house, apartment, or dorm room. Then let them know what to bring and what to expect, (some people waver in the uncertainty of events). Tell everyone to bring $2-5 for a surprise activity.
