As much as I love Halloween, I didn't actually go to many haunted houses until after college-I can be kind of a wuss. I've actually been to the high school's haunted house the past three years, so it was really cool to see it from the other side, and I had tons of fun hanging out with the kids and throwing fake blood everywhere.
The room I was in was full of jack o' lanterns (pro tip: don't cut jack o' lanterns two weeks before you need them-they'll get moldy and gross!). After being in a room full of rotting pumpkins for two days, getting to smash them all after the house closed Sunday night was really rewarding!
Even though I'm still super tired from the busy weekend, I really enjoyed it. It was so great to see our high school theater kids step up and take ownership of this project, and they really had fun with it. Hopefully they'll ask me to help out again next year, but if not, I'll definitely be walking through as a customer!
