We asked our staff and activity leaders what they love about Halloween. Check out their answers in their own words below!

Steena (aka FrankenSteena) – IGGPPC Staff: Prefect, Events

What are you excited about during the Halloween season?
I saw Over the Garden Wall for the first time last year and it will become an annual tradition this October.

What do you love about Over the Garden Wall?
OtGW is just the right blend of spooky, kooky, and cozy. I like that I can share it with my family, the art is very reminiscent of Adventure Time/Gravity Falls, and it’s a compelling and mystic story.

What candy are you hoping for in your Halloween bucket?
Tootsie Rolls!

Dezpresso – Activity Leader: IggleGamers

What are you excited about during the Halloween season?
I love the chill in the air and the decorations on houses. I love carving out pumpkins and roasting the seeds. My family usually has a pumpkin guts fight, so that is also fun as well. Can I also say pumpkin spice latte season?

What are you excited to share with the IGGPPC this Halloween?
I love sharing the season with IGGPPC and Iggles during HallowIggles, because like camp it’s another opportunity for us to get together and interact with each other. It brings out spooky sides and fun that may not happen otherwise. It allows for us to take a break from the real world, which is needed – not just in 2020.

What candy are you hoping to find in your Halloween bucket?
Reeses pumpkins and Kitkats!

Notorious V.I.C. – Activity Leader: IggleFlicks

What are you excited about during the Halloween season?
I love watching scary movies, eating too much candy and decorating!

What are you looking forward to sharing with the IGGPPC during the Halloween season?
I love how excited everyone gets for Halloween, and seeing everyone’s decorations and creations. And the Halloween swaps are always a blast!

What are you hoping to find in your Halloween bucket this year?
Give me ALL the sour gummies please! Mmmm

Zoe (aka Witchy) – Activity Leader: IgglesCreate

What are you excited about during the Halloween season?
It coincides with a pagan holiday called Samhain. It’s a time of celebrating the spooky and creepy aspect of Halloween, while honoring the more somber aspects of Samhain. Overall, it’s a time of year when witchcraft in general is out of the broom closet!

What are you excited to share with the IGGPPC this Halloween?
I love getting a chance to do the Halloween card swap and see what kinds of imagery people find, whether it’s cute, vintage or spooky! It’s also a great time for crafting.

What candy are you hoping to find in your Halloween bucket?
Reese’s Pumpkins 🎃

All the new home decorations I get to shop for! Just kidding. (Well, not really.) I’ve been super into learning about Celtic lore lately, and Halloween seems like a perfect time to do that!
