Halloween is going to be different this year with the threat of COVID-19 hanging over our heads, but don’t worry! There are still ways to celebrate Halloween in style!
Here are the number one picks for a Happy Halloween!
1. Stay inside, eat candy, and watch a scary movie
Spooky season isn’t just a fun thing to celebrate the month of October; it really means getting spooky! Breaking out that bag of candy and booting up Netflix might feel like another Saturday night, but you can turn up the fear with a scary movie and Milk Duds Snack Size!
2. Costume contest
Just because you’re staying inside doesn't mean you can’t dress up! FaceTime a couple of friends or get your family involved to find out who can create the most creative costume! Who knows, maybe it will become a yearly tradition!
3. Candy exchange
Your favorite candy might not be your friends. Team up and swap out those 3 Musketeers for a bag of Skittles. There is also the option of a treat exchange! Make your favorite Halloween dessert, like popcorn balls or scary Rice Krispies Treats, and drop them at your friends’ door for a spooky and sweet surprise!
4. Carving jack-o’-lanterns
This activity can bring back so many childhood memories! Though it can be gross, it can still be a way to show off your artistic skills. If getting your hands in the pumpkin and using a knife isn’t your thing, try painting or drawing on your pumpkin. Get creative!
5. Small party
You can still be safe while inside. Inviting a couple of people you trust, knowing they have taken precautions, is still okay. Though it might not be the rager you were hoping for, it can still be a fun night with friends. Have them dress up or play some spooky party games. Just because you are inside doesn't mean you can’t have fun with the people you love.
Though Halloween might look a little different this year, it is still important to show your love for the spookiest of holidays. Halloween allows you to be someone else for the night, show off your pranking side, or indulge your sweet tooth! Just because we have the threat of COVID hanging over our heads doesn't mean we stop living; it just means we adjust the way we live!
