Our fun Halloween holiday has been infected by another horror plaguing us all. We all know what it is called, but we continuously struggle throughout the year to get rid of it. Yet, it does not seem to want to leave us alone. It won’t let us go back to our regular day to day lives. It has negatively affected every holiday since it began. Sadly, it will put a damper one of our most favored and beloved holidays. Halloween!!!
Deciding whether or not to spend Halloween at home, or make a go for it out in public is a hard and even dangerous decision to make. We all want our old lives back, but outside of our front doors where once there was freedom. Now, lies a detriment of restriction and dred that puts unwanted fear in a Holiday we all want to enjoy.
Halloween isn’t only about ghouls and goblins. It is also, the fight against ghouls and goblins. The worst ghoul/goblin of them all for us, right now is COVID-19! Getting mad and refusing to wear our masks and maintain a social distance is not going to win the fight. It is only going to make things worse. When this fight is won it will be because we participated the battle, the war. We did so by washing our hands regularly, keeping a social distance of 6 feet, and wearing our masks. We also participated by staying home.
If you decide to take that potentially dangerous risk and go out for Halloween. Remember, how to keep yourself and others safe, and practice it. Please!

Having a spooky Halloween dinner can be a treat almost as yummy as trick ‘r’ treating! The Halloween recipes on this Youtube channel can fill every bellie with Halloween remembrance while allowing every tummy to embrace their dark side. This year treating Halloween a bit like Thanksgiving might just be the current in vogue. After dinner, throw in a little bit of Easter and allow the kids to play a twisted candy hunt. Just tie a fist full of sweet treats into a tie bag or simply use Ziploc and let the kids and even adults, if you’d like to get a satisfying taste of Halloween trick ‘r’ treating.
Another good idea is to add some tricking into it. Instead of always finding candy, they can find that a Halloween trick is right up your sleeve. You can always jump out of a dark corner and scare them. Yet, these two videos can bring magic to a hum-drum Halloween at home. Practice safety precautions prior to utilizing these fun and amazing tricks!
