It’s inevitable that spooky season is different this year, but that doesn’t mean that it has to be boring. The pandemic has taught us so many things, one of its most valuable lessons being to think outside the box. With that being said, we are encouraged to imagine alternative ways to having fun this holiday season that don’t include the traditional group gatherings. Below is a list of Covid-friendly ways to celebrate this Halloween while adhering to the guidelines set in place by the CDC:
- Virtual Rave – Yes, this may not be the same as being two inches from people in a crowded room, but it does the trick. Put your costume on, get your friends on a zoom call, turn on some party lights in your house, and party from a distance.
- Pull out a white sheet for the Tik-Tok Ghost Photo Shoot – But – a bit different that you’re used to. Instead of going outside to take photos, take them in your house! It will force you to be creative. How will you use the space and objects you have right next to you?
- Nostalgic Halloween Movie Night – You know what I’m talking about. Two names: Debbie Reynolds and Bette Midler. Cozy up with a pumpkin spice chai latte and watch all THE Halloween movies (Halloweentown, Hocus Pocus, Twitches, all of those Disney classics).
- Bake! – Pumpkin, maple, chai, cinnamon, caramel, apple cider flavored everything! If you’re like me, then you like to eat…a lot. Fall just has the best flavors, doesn’t it?
- Pumpkin Carving – It gives you a chance to get creative with what you’re making, and the best part is – you can bake your seeds afterward to be sweet or savory or both!
The pandemic doesn’t have to stop the fun. Remember, everything is what you make it. Be safe!
