BA Class '06 Organizes First Annual Halloween Party

The B.A. Class of 2006 invites you to its first Halloween Party on October 30, 2007.

With the intention to start an annual event, hosted by the respective 2nd-year B.A. class, the organizing staff is hoping for many of you to show up (and present your costumes).
The tradition of Halloween supposedly goes back to Irish immigrants, bringing with them the tradition of celebrating "All Hallow's Eve," a Christian celebration. Today, Halloween is among, if not the most famous celebration of children in the US.
