Errand Date : October 30th 2020 - 7PM ・○・ Main Errand Information
October brought with it more than just cold weather and looming midterms but the promise of children being sugared up and set forth in groups of princesses and demons to adventure the halls in search of adventure. Trick-or-Treating had been something that many Muggleborn students were all too familiar with. The excitement and stories had filtered along to those that maybe were not as aware of this tradition within the magical world. While there were no neighborhoods to wander the streets of, walking up and greeting neighbors to ask for those sugary delights. There were Professors that wanted to make the castle feel the same, filled with the same joy and excitement of being able to get sugary treats for free. The professors and staff had been planning to make up for their lack of being able to go out on the town and trick or treat by setting up locations within the castle itself for the students to take advantage of.
By mid October students would see posters placed around and an announcement during one of the dinner feasts about hosting a Trick-or-Treat event on Halloween night. Costumes were welcomed but not required and of course students could bring either a pillowcase or some sort of container for their candy. It was sure to be a night of destressing from the looming responsibilities of school. At every location there was some sort of candy receptacle, and a label for how much was allowed to be taken from it.
The Muggle Studies had of course, some muggle treats. In a giant pumpkin carved out with a beautiful smiling face. It was filled to the brim with candies that would be immediately recognizable to muggles, but those who had grown up without knowing about muggle things might be a bit confused. There were Hershey kisses wrapped up in foil with decorations of spiderwebs, ghosts and bats. Boxes of varieties of flavored nerds. Packets of candy corn. As well as the ever familiar, forever stale, popcorn balls. To some purebloods who had never encountered them they may seem like a delightful treat. Most muggle-borns knew to stay far away from them. If someone were to take more than one popcorn ball, two packets of candy corn, two boxes of nerds, and five Hershey’s kisses, they would begin to slap themselves silly until they reached the ballroom for assistance from a professor in breaking the spell.● 𝕄𝕦𝕘𝕘𝕝𝕖 𝕄𝕦𝕟𝕔𝕙𝕚𝕖𝕤 ●
