This weekend, ⅔ of The Trio (Amanda was there in spirit) visited the notoriously spooky town of Salem, Massachusetts. Famous for its haunted history of seventeenth century witch trials, Salem is the perfect place for a classic Halloween adventure. The town is just a short ride away by commuter rail, which makes it an ideal destination for a day trip.
You know what time of year it is: the leaves are changing, the air is getting crisp and everyone is trying to recover from Halloween. Fall is one of the best times of the year, but it is fast fleeting and there is only so much Halloween fun you can pack into October before the next holiday hits. I don’t know about you all, but even though I’m well past the acceptable age for trick or treating, I somehow acquire an absurd amount of candy during this spooky season. From care packages from home and free candy from events around campus, by the time the 31st rolls around, I’m already in a candy coma and have no clue what to do with all the rest. This is probably one of those problems that’s not really at problem at all, but read on if you need some ideas on what to do with your candy stash. Don’t forget to hit up CVS in November for the half-off candy and try some of these delicious ideas.
