Halloween 2020 Looking Different

October 21, 2020

Halloween will look very different this year due to COVID.  Trick- or-Treaters as well as their parents and Businesses will feel the impact.  The National Retail Federation reported that fewer people will hand out candy or go trick-or-treating this year than last, and fewer people plan to throw or attend a party or visit a haunted house due to Social Distancing measures but more folks are looking to decorate the homes. Parents and Business owners struggle on how to still celebrate the Holiday and stay safe.  The CDC listed some ways you can make Halloween this year safer:

  • Avoid direct contact with trick-or-treaters.
  • Give out treats outdoors, if possible.
  • Set up a station with individually bagged treats for kids to take.
  • Wash hands before handling treats.
  • Wear a mask.

If everyone uses common sense and follows these simple steps, we can still enjoy the Holiday and be safe.  If you are still leary and are one of those fortunate organizations that have thrived through the pandemic, now is the time to give back to the children and their parents by donating to a good cause.  The month of October has recognized many things, not only is it Halloween but it is also Breast Cancer Awareness Month.  Remember the children that are stuck in the hospital battling cancer and other diseases.  If you can send a monetary donation to any of the following organizations:

  1. Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia
  2. St. Jude’s
  3. Unite for HER
  4. Bringing Hope Home
  5. Cleaning for a Reason
  6. Helen’s Angels
  7. American Cancer Society

Please go to the CDC Website for additional information on guidelines.  https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/daily-life-coping/holidays/halloween.html If you have any questions on donating to any of the organizations above please reach out to me.  Please continue to stay safe and practice social distancing.  Feel free to reach out with any questions.
