I don't think I can justify either.
Good question. My kids have been discussing their Halloween costumes and I don't have the heart to tell them it's not going to happen this year. Ugh.
Yes. We usually leave a bowl out anyway, while we go around with the kids. We will all have masks as will likely the people passing out candy. Maybe we’ll keep the bags aside for a few days after.
I imagine fewer neighbors will participate, which is understandable.
Our community spread is super low (fewer than five positive cases in the state every day this past week), which plays a big factor in my comfort level.
Wonder if De Blasio will forbid it?... that actually never even crossed my mind.
if the weather is nice why cant kids trick or treat outside??
I thought I saw on the news that door to door trick or treating was very high risk.
Our neighborhood is always so packed on Halloween. I can't justify it this year. I'll probably get some fancy candy and we'll do a scavenger hunt.
My daughter said we should put a bowl of candy behind each door in our home so they can trick or treat here. I thought that was a cute idea!
I'm hoping to find some kind of outdoor event or ToTing for my kids. My building usually has apts sign up to ToT, but I really doubt that's going to happen this year -- lots of kids wandering the halls is probably not what they want. Even if they did, I bet not many people will sign up. I already got a costume for one of my kids; it's something he's really excited abou. I guess we can play dressup with it, but hopefully he can wear it out somewhere.
