Covid-19 - spooky seeing your name here, yet again. You’ve really taught us how to live our lives completely different than we’re used to, especially with large events, holidays and opportunities for gatherings. Maybe it’s just me, but did Easter 2020 even happen? Well, October 31 is just around the corner and the latest gossip is that Halloween 2020 could be cancelled because of the pandemic. I mean… we’re all already wearing masks, so maybe moving forward with Halloween 2020 could be a good thing to reinforce this behaviour?
Halloween 2020 Will Not be Cancelled
Now, obviously Halloween 2020 will look different for everyone depending where you live, what the Covid-19 cases look like, who you are and what you do to celebrate the spooky holiday. If you’re the kind of person who gets together with friends for some drinks, pumpkin carving and costume contests, then yeah, a small gathering isn’t going to cause too many problems. You may just want to think twice about bobbing for apples though...
What About Haunted Houses?
Again, this is something that will likely be decided based on local authorities. If big parades, costume contests and haunted houses are a big thing in your community, you may want to keep an eye out for the status of these types of events to see if they are still a go.
Trick-or-Treat, Smell My Feet
The one we’re all anxiously waiting to hear about. If you’ve been to a supermarket, you’ve noticed the costumes and boxes of candy making their way onto the shelves. Will the miniature superheroes, animals, princesses and goblins be out to collect candy this year?
“COVID could be better by then, perhaps there will be some sort of mutation like we saw with SARS. Or we could be back in lockdown. Nobody knows where we will be,” Said Pediatrician Dr. Dina Kulik.
If Halloween 2020 is a go, it’s also important to consider if it would even be considered “fun” if we’re constantly reminding our little ones to not touch their face and sanitize after ringing each doorbell.
After all, Halloween 2020 falls on a Saturday night under a full moon… who knows what kind of spooky things will happen. Fright night anyone?
