We like to stay pretty competitive here at The Thrill, and a Blog Off is one way we can definitively prove that one of us is objectively a better blogger (dare we say, a better person). So we leave it to you, the reader, to decide in a blind taste test who is really better as we square off on various topics. Today, we have Rebecca Kornman ’22 and Kathleen Stedman ’20 revisit the age-old question RE: Which weekend is the proper Halloweekend? October 25th-27th or November 2nd-4th?
