The countdown has begun: only three days until Halloween. While some students prepare months for the scariest day of the year, others wait until the last possible moment to even think about Oct. 31.

What candy to buy? What to wear? Where to go? Students are asking themselves as Halloween approaches. Luckily for the students, they need to look no further than this article for ideas.

What candy should you buy to give out to trick-or-treaters or just leave laying around for you to munch on? Why not go with the brown and orange candy that has appeared at Halloween parties for years and years. It may not be chocolate or even a candy bar, but candy corn is the best selling of all the Halloween candies.

If you are in more of a mood to have candy bars and chocolate around, the next five best selling Halloween candies are Snickers, Reese’s Cups, Kit Kats, Milky Way Bars and M&M’s.

While candy isn’t an absolute necessity for Halloween, the costume is, and this year is sure to turn out some interesting costumes.

Are you looking for a contemporary costume this year? Popular contemporary costume ideas this year include Amy Winehouse, Manny Ramirez, Lady Gaga, Bernie Madoff, Sarah Palin, Michael Jackson and Farrah Fawcett.

Contemporary may not be your style. Maybe something classic or retro would fit you better for Halloween. Characters such as Bert and Ernie, Mario and Luigi and Big Bird are also growing in popularity.

Are you looking to go out for Halloween as a couple? One of the most popular couple costumes of the past few years has been the plug costume for men and socket costume for women. If that is a little too racy, you can always go with classics like Fred and Wilma Flintstone, Popeye and Olive Oyl, Fred and Daphne from Scooby Doo or Little Red Riding Hood and the Big Bad Wolf.

Halloween costumes and snacks taken care of, but you still don’t know what to do? There are events in Kearney and the surrounding area that will be sure to give you a scare.
