What to do About Halloween 2020

Halloween means dressing up, telling a joke (we're from STL), and getting candy.

All I want to be able to say to my kids is, "Yes, sweet babies, you can still Trick or Treat this year." So what to do?

You can read the links below from the CDC, NPR, and Good-House Keeping. All good stuff for sure, but I'll tell you that I plan to do 3 things for sure, and if my neighbors don't want to participate then I'll go to #4 on my list.

  • Write my neighbors and ask everyone who wants to participate in handing out candy to sit at end of their driveway from 6-7:30 pm. We can do one-way street trick-or-treating with individually wrapped goodie bags that are lined up for families to grab and go while continuing to social distance.
  • Carving or decorating pumpkins, hanging up yard decorations.
  • Decorating a medical-grade mask or buy a Halloween-themed cloth mask.
  • If all else fails, secretly, I'll hide candy all over my yard and let my kids search for their treats, just like Easter.

 That's my plan...what's your plan?

Wishing You All the Happiest Halloween!!!!
