How to have a COVID-19 safe Halloween

It is now October and I think we can all officially say 2020 has sucked. While we have been in quarantine most of the year (and for almost a year, like whattt) Halloween is one of my favorite holidays of the year and I am going to make the most of it, safely of course, and want to share some tips on how you can too.

  1. 1. Costumes

    If there was ever a year for Halloween to be filled with masks, 2020 takes the cake. The absolute safest costumes are the ones you can wear masks for, Michael Meyers, saw, Freddy Krueger, those weird baby masks at Spirit Halloween, you get it. These costumes are perfect because you can wear these as a mask and you can wear your covid mask under it for extra protection. Another super safe costume type is those inflatable ones everyone has on TikTok. There are dinosaurs, sponge bob characters, I even saw one that was supposed to be a dog balloon animal (super cute and so funny). These costumes put you in like your own little bubble keeping you safe from the COVID scaries all around. 

  2. 2. Small get-togethers/outings

    Just because there is COVID that doesn't mean you can't celebrate. Get you and 2 or 3 friends and you can do a Halloween movie night or get in your costumes and head over to chipotle for some “boo-ritos”. There are outdoor haunted houses you can go to with some friends or even scary corn mazes. Although it may not be what you normally do there are still some super fun activities for this year's Halloween. 

  3. 3. Trick or Treater's

    If you are like me you love to greet all the trick or treaters and see all the adorable little kids in their little costumes. Well, I can say that there will be a lot of tricks or treaters this year, but you can safely hand out candy in 2 ways as I see it. You can leave a bowl of candy out with a package of disposable gloves next to it hoping people use the gloves to get the candy or you can package up 2-3 pieces of candy in little sandwich baggies from the dollar store and give people candy that way. This way there is no transfer of germs hand to hand.
