30th October turned out to be great fun for the Department of Plant Pathology and Crop Physiology graduate students of LSU! Since the fall break came with a promising weekend, stealing some time for fun was convenient.
Halloween is an annual celebration marked in most regions of the western world. History has it that it used to be a day set aside for remembering the dead and all departed faithfuls. (Bet we all have that one person we think of when such topics are mentioned…). Although October 31st is the official date for Halloween celebrations in countries like the United States, Canada and England, we went ahead of the world on the 30th of October. With much costuming, pumpkin carving (you never know what great artists we’ve got until a time like this!), sharing riddles, dancing/seeing horror musical videos and lots of snacks and drinks, it was easy to look forward to next year.
