Holidays I'd like to see

Try a New Religion Day  <p>No, not like the band New Religion. Like if you're Catholic, go to a Jewish ceremony. Jewish hope over to the Baptist Church. Mormons, meet someone from the Church of the Flying Spaghetti Monster. Atheist,  why don't Muslims eat what you eat? Hindu meet someone who is New Age and pick their brain. If we understood each other's ideals more, it's make the world an easier place to live in. This could even be a college course...they could call it, World Religions or something!
With Rugby Christmas over, Ugly Christmas sweater Parties right around the corner, and me currently on day two of cooking/baking for Thanksgiving, there are a few holidays I’d really like to see.  

USA v All Blacks, weekend to remember

So, if you follow me on Twitter, you know that at the half, I was done because the All Blacks were scoring faster than I could type. The weekend itself however, was AMAZING! After Friday’s mini snow/hail down fall, I was definitely nervous about how Saturday would go. The amount of people and the energy... Read more »

Screams with your Teams!

The 13th Floor is in Melrose Park, promises enough blood, gore, and darkness to keep you up at night and wondering what the heck was that.
The 13th Floor is a chain of haunted houses all across the nation, which means they have to be doing something right to have expanded and keep coming back.  There are two houses that you get into for $25, $35 with a VIP Pass for a shorter line/quicker entry into the houses. Although, as it gets closer to Halloween, Saturday prices go up by $5.  Once mid-October hits, they're open Wednesday-Sunday which means you could go after practice one day, post game, or on a Sunday Funday.
I have yet to check out this attraction, but it will be on my list for this year.
HALLOWEEN TIME!!! It is my favorite time of year. Always has been, and i really hope it always will be. In college, my teammates and I would always take a trip to a haunted house, just out side of our little college town. It was fun to see which girls got scared, which didn’t, and... Read more »
