The mixture of fall colors, cooler temperatures, creative costumes and oh-so-sweet candy makes for one of the most fun holidays out there. So when I got my list of Faces and Places stops a few months ago, I was very excited that I was chosen to go to Neewollah, once I found out what it was.I had never heard of Neewollah before. It wasn&rsquo;t until I told my parents about my trips, that my mom pointed out it is Halloween spelled backwards. I really should have figured that out earlier. My parents told me about the great Halloween celebrations that take place in Independence, Kansas, and from that point on I was counting down the days until the trip.
