A student at a small Christian college in Pennsylvania is celebrating Halloween as a way to learn about life and faith.
The student, who is identified as Samantha, is making cookies, filling them with candy, and decorating them with the letters “Halloween” in a homemade pumpkin decoration, a recipe she shared on Instagram on Saturday.
The school district says the students cookie decorating is free and is not a requirement.
It says it is an expression of the students faith and that they will be celebrating their birthday and Halloween as normal.
The principal of the Pennsylvania Christian College, which is a private Christian university, did not immediately return a request for comment.
