What will Halloween look like this year?

Our Costco now has Halloween decorations set out to buy. This made me wonder what Halloween and/or trick or treating will look like this year? I dont think there will be many trick or treaters and I dont think I want to answer the door for the the hordes of kids & parents like I did in the past. Your thoughts?

Same as always here. We haven't had trick or treaters for at least 10 years

I donít think there will be many trick or treaters this year. I think Iíll just buy my kids favourite treats and that will be it.

Another reason to be glad my kids are grown diring this pandemic. We live in the country, miles from another house so we do not get trick or treaters.

I've thought about that too. It doesn't look like things with Covid will be changing anytime soon, so we will stay home and not participate.

Seeing all the summer activities on social media, makes me think tons of people in high risk areas will continue as normal because "insert selfish reason here".

I also am imagining some safer socially distant activities like outside trunk or treat, with treats and people spread out or something. Those types of activities are not really appealing to me and you know there will be those not willing to follow the saftey rules , but unless we are locked down again, I can imagine people trying to do stuff like that.

Trunk-orTreat

Our area has had Trunk-or-Treat, where families decorate cars and give out candy to participating families in the school parking lot. They probably could do something like that with social distancing. However, if the school is virtual by that time (they are planning to start with a hybrid model), I doubt they will do anything. At home, I do not think I will be answering the door if my town does not act to cancel it. We had very few last year anyway.

I think kids should stand in their yards and adults drive around, throwing candy at them!

I've seldom had any trick-or-treaters even though my street is right by the school. I don't expect any change for me, but it remains to be seen for the main street in town that usually sees hordes of masked candy seekers. I'm betting the numbers will be such that it won't be allowed.

I imagine in my town, the churches will take over Halloween. Most of them already host Trunk or Treats and fall festivals. I'm sure they will figure out a way to make them drive-thru events so that the kids are able to get candy without having to leave their vehicles.

Not sure what will happen in my town. We usually get about 400 kids. We will have our lights off this year.

It will be the same for me as what sonoma said...we haven't had trick-or-treaters in about 10+ yrs anyway, so nothing will change there.

I sure don't dress up at all for any reason.

I have a feeling we won't do traditional trick -or-treating with my 3 year old DS. I might possibly sit on the porch and let him continually run up and ring our doorbell (he loves doorbells) and give him a treat. He would have fun running up and down our driveway and ringing the bell. Another possibility we might do is a personal piŮata. Since he's young I don't think he will protest a change in plans.

I doubt we will put on our porch light, even though I enjoy giving candy to our 300+ trick or treaters. I love the idea of driving around throwing candy at kids in their yards!. That is hilarious!

No trick or treats for me. Like others I haven't had any in years. I won't put the lights on either. I do like the idea of driving around and throwing candy out the window

Your idea of letting your 3 year old trick or teat repeatedly at your house is adorable. I will pass this idea on to my DIL. Fun!

I would totally drive around and throw candy at kids!

When I was in college, almost all of my friends went to a party on Halloween, but one friend and I had major midterms the next day, so we stayed home. His room was second floor directly above the front door. Whenever someone rang the door, we showered the trick or treaters with candy.
