Halloween has been canceled. Well, sort of.
Remember going trick-or-treating with your friends and then going to the big costume party at your neighbor’s house? What about going to your favorite haunted house or haunted hayride? Unfortunately, this year we may not even be able to experience some of these things. The other day the CDC released their recommendations for partaking in the upcoming holiday, separating all Halloween activities into groups depending on their level of risk as it pertains to spreading the virus. Many of the traditional Halloween activities we know and love have been deemed high-risk this year due to COVID-19. Our favorite activities such as traditional door to door trick-or-treating, costume parties, haunted houses, and hayrides are all suggested to be avoided. You can add this to the continuously growing list of bad things to come out of 2020.
While this may be hard to accept for some, the CDC still suggested a handful of safe activities that can be performed that are completely safe and still in the Halloween spirit. Some of the suggested, low-risk activities include carving pumpkins with members of your household, decorating your house, having a virtual costume contest, or having a scavenger hunt around your house rather than going house to house in the neighborhood. As you begin to plan and prepare to experience Halloween safely, these activities may be just what you’re looking for to keep your kids preoccupied and not worrying about missing out on trick-or-treating.
