This month I am going to try to complete TWO blog challenges — one post a day for each one. This is number one for the Ultimate Blog Challenge. Let’s go!

Halloween is this month. It will likely be a different type of Halloween than we have faced in a really long time due to COVID-19. Social distancing* will likely change many plans and cancel or alter trick-or-treating and Halloween parties.

However, some people are planning to incorporate the new restrictions of 2020 with their Halloween celebrations. Ideas like virtual parties on Zoom or some other meeting service or micro-parties with 10 or fewer people have become more popular. If you decide to take your kids trick-or-treating, this will require more creativity to maximize safety. Traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating is discouraged but parents are considering other ways to maintain the fun of the holiday safely.

Either way, you may still want to wear a costume — even if you are doing it in your own house!
