Ah, the glory of Fall. A slight (very slight as we are in Florida) change of temperature, pumpkins, PSLs and Fall Festivals, Halloween Hayrides and…oh, wait…it is 2020. It is such a shame too because Halloween of 2020 presented the most perfect of circumstances: it is a Saturday, it is a full moon (even better, a “blue moon,” an event that occurs only once every couple of years). But, yet, here we are trying to find a way to have a safe Halloween.
While Halloween might look different this year, that doesn’t mean it should be boring.
Who would have thought a virus in February would still be giving us such heartache in tradition during a time of year most of us look so forward to. While the coronavirus pandemic has interrupted many of our annual traditions, it seems many families are dead set on celebrating Halloween during quarantine. A recent Harris Poll survey suggests that more than 70% of millennial moms are planning to make “the most” of Halloween with their families, with 80% of all surveyed said that heading out to trick-or-treat is at the top of their list of things to do on Halloween.
Here are some low-risk activities to celebrate a safe Halloween, according to the CDC website.
Carving or decorating pumpkins with members of your household and displaying them
Carving or decorating pumpkins outside, at a safe distance, with neighbors or friends
Decorating your house, apartment, or living space
Doing a Halloween scavenger hunt where children are given lists of Halloween-themed things to look for while they walk outdoors from house to house, admiring Halloween decorations at a distance
Having a virtual Halloween costume contest
Having a Halloween movie night with people you live with
Having a scavenger hunt-style trick-or-treat search with your household members in or around your home rather than going house to house
However, you plan to celebrate Halloween, stay safe and have a great time.

For non-race fans, there is a Farmer’s Market this weekend located in historic Downtown Daytona Beach right outside our Work Webb office. You can browse the Farmer’s Market and find all sorts of amazing things.

As a small business owner myself and a business consultant of over 15 years standing, I cannot speak highly enough of Work Webb in Daytona Beach. Not only is the location perfect for downtown meetings but parking is plentiful and the staff and variable rates first class and a match for any budget. It is with great pleasure that I can recommend Heidi’s solution for small business owners in the area and fully endorse Work Webb.
I am a court reporter who needs conference rooms to hold depositions on a regular basis. I used to use hotel conference rooms, which weren’t very professional, but were the only places available to rent by the hour, and were VERY costly. Another court reporter told me about Work Webb, and I have been happily using their services for almost two years. I have also told all national firms that I work with to use them. The rooms are clean, the staff is VERY helpful, there’s wifi, snacks/coffee/water, use of phones when my clients can’t make it in person, copy machine, and Susan and Heidi are there to make sure all of my needs are met…even lunch selections from great nearby restaurants. I look forward to having jobs there. The positive and upbeat spirit in that office is infectious. It also happens to be the most beautiful building in downtown Daytona Beach. Also, the rates literally cannot be beat!
