1. No Carved Pumpkins
When life bans pumpkins, use pineapple instead. Alex Schwarz, a 19-year-old university student found a way to beat the system when his university told him they weren’t allowed to have any pumpkin jack-o-lanterns in their dorm room. Since they didn’t mention anything about pineapples, he found a way around the rule. He said, “some higher-ups sent an email to all the RAs in my dorm and the one next to ours saying no pumpkins because they rot and might attract bugs and rats.”
He found a loophole and used a pineapple, which faced mixed messages. His own RA said it was fine, as long as he threw it away before it began to rot, but another RA down the hall banned the pineapple. They were unable to find a rule that banned pineapples, so the idea prevailed. He definitely had a Happy Halloween (via Teen Vogue).
