Popular Halloween Costumes

Have you picked out your Halloween costume yet? Don’t wait until the last minute! Halloween is next week.

Vogue put a list together of the most Googled costumes for 2018.

“Look, pretty much everything is crowdsourced these days, so why not your Halloween costume? For the truly uninspired, seeking out this year’s most Googled Halloween costumes can do the trick when you need a quick fix. (Alternatively, if your goal is to stand out, you can find out which ideas to steer clear from.) The results may surprise you—or not, if you’re a Fortnite fan. According to Google, the video game is the number one most searched costume in a whopping 43 states. Accordingly, it leads the top 10 list below for the whole country, but there are a few interesting additions: “Pirate” is still going strong, for example, many years after Jack Sparrow has been on our screens; and would you know that “Rabbit” is a top contender, maybe because of its versatility? There’s cute rabbit (Ralphie in A Christmas Story), scary rabbit (Donnie Darko), and even a sexy rabbit option, as in Jessica.

Below are the top 10 most Googled costumes for the year overall, then the top searches for the mere seven states in which Fortnite did not dominate.”

Happy Boss Day

Happy Boss’s Day!

Boss’s Day can be traced all the way back to 1958. A State Farm Insurance Co. in Illinois, Patricia Bays Haroski, decided to register the holiday with the U.S Chamber of Commerce.

The purpose of her creating the holiday wasn’t just to honor her own boss but so all employees could honor their bosses. She thought that Boss’s Day would become instrumental in improving employer-employee relations.

In 1962, the Illinois Governor heard about the holiday and officially proclaimed the day as an observance.

Our drink for today, Friday October 5, is called Witches Brew. Here’s our recipe:

 

Witches Brew

Prep Time: 5 minutes
Total Time: 5 minutes

Instructions:
Start by preping 4 lowball glasses:
Cut the lime in half and squeeze the juice together into a saucer.
Add the purple food coloring and mix with a cocktail stick.
Place the sugar in a second saucer.
Dip your glass rim into the lim juice and then into the sugar.
Set each glass aside.
