Flux Photo Essay: Why We Love Halloween

Happy Halloween!

This Halloween, we decided we’d celebrate the different aspects of this holiday we all love. There are so many things that can help make Halloween a success, and here are just a few of our personal favorites.


My favorite thing about Halloween is going to the pumpkin patch, finding the perfect pumpkin, and carving it. The best part about carving a pumpkin is being able to scoop all of the seeds out and toast them in the oven!


The best part about Halloween is definitely the costumes! There are so many options, and it’s the only acceptable time of the year to fully dress up in costume and take on a different persona. My personal favorite and go-to? A cat. You can’t go wrong with a traditional Halloween favorite.


The best part of Halloween is getting ready to go out! This is the one time of year where you can be whoever you want and wear whatever you want with no judgement. No outfit is too insane, no makeup is too much, and it is the perfect time to be as creative and crazy as you want!


My favorite thing about Halloween is the candy! It just tastes better on this holiday, and you can get it in the best assortments.


Everyone knows that as soon as Halloweentown starts premiering on the Disney Channel, it is officially that time of the year. Whether it’s the The Exorcist or The Hills Have Eyes, Halloween movies are key to enhancing your month of fright. So make some hot cider, pop in a scary film, and cuddle up with a buddy because it’s Halloween!


I always know it’s Halloween when, while walking around Eugene and campus, I find orange pumpkin faces staring at me from windows and sidewalks. Each one is individual, and each one differs in skill level of carving and personality. The only downside is having to watch them rot away through November and December.


My favorite thing about Halloween is picking a costume that involves me and a mustache.
