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.
As you prepare for your Thanksgiving festivities, some significant events are going on this month in Daytona Beach that you might want to put on your calendar. Here is What’s Happening around Work Webb for the Daytona Beach Location.
Saturday, November 23 – 1 PM to 5 PM — Another Distinctively Downtown Daytona Experience!
