5 Alternatives To Going To a Halloween Party This Year

It’s that time of year again – All Hallows’ Eve. That means time to break out the fake blood and fangs, hang up the cobwebs instead of dusting them away and gorging yourself on sweets. What more could you want?

 It also means inevitably attending a Halloween party. But what if you wanted to do something different?

1. Get creative with your pumpkin carving

You’d be surprised how therapeutic this can be. Get a bunch of friends together and really go to town on those pumpkins. Whether you like to go old-school, letting loose your inner sculptor to carve free-hand or play it safe and use a stencil, this is definitely an activity you should give a go this weekend.

2. Have a movie night

Everyone loves a good movie night and for some strange reason, a lot of people also like being scared. Why not combine the two in celebration of this ancient holiday. Break out the classics like A Nightmare on Elm Street or the Exorcist or opt for lighter flicks such as Hocus Pocus or Beetlejuice and get cosy for the night. The great thing about this plan over dressing up (or down, depending on your costume) at the end of October is that you don’t have to rely on a beer jacket to keep you warm – your onesie and duvet will do the job just fine.

3. Ghost hunting

This option if not for the faint-hearted but could be your perfect Halloween alternative. Why not find one of these places and see if the spirits fancy a chat. Be sure to look out for ‘No tresspassing’ signs though, that could really ruin the night.

4. Baking

The possibilities really are endless for this one. From banana ghosts to creepy cookies, the world is your oyster. Feel free to share.

5. Arrange a zombie flash mob

Okay so this one is a little far-fetched but you never know, you may find a bunch of willing, wannabe zombies. It takes all kinds to make up a university student body. Get inspired by The Walking Dead and bring the horror to campus or town.

Happy Halloween!
