People Explain How They'll Be Safely Celebrating Halloween During The Pandemic

Trick or Treat! But 6 feet back please!

Halloween 2020 was all set up to be the Halloween to end all Halloweens! Its on a Saturday, its going to be a Full Moon and.... it's daylight savings thereby giving us all an extra hour to party! This sort of miracle may never happen again! But of course 2020 has to extinguish any spark of fun or frivolity! So now we have to make contingency plans to try and salvage some sort of spooky pleasure. Let's see how creative we can be....

Redditor u/THeReISnoCarOL-inHR wanted to discuss how we're gonna get through Halloween 2020 by asking.... How will you be celebrating Halloween during this pandemic?

Domination!

Same way I celebrate every night. Try to take over the world.

The Dead Bringer....

I'm going to dress up in my renaissance clothes and pull a wagon around the neighborhood shouting, "Bring out your dead!"

I've spent the last two weeks trying to gauge how inappropriately appropriate it would be to dress as a plague doctor this year.

I've run the idea by a few people I know, concerned that it might be a little insensitive. Some think it would be. But I'm afraid my love for the idea might overcome my sense of propriety.

Seeing Red

Get some red contacts and go to work as if nothing's wrong.

Trick or Treat

Put treats in individual snack baggies on a table on my front lawn. I will replenish in between groups.

I am encouraging my neighbors to do this too. Baggies of candy on the lawn, lining the sidewalk. Homeowners 6 feet away at their homes/front doors.

Also, we will have a costume parade for the young kiddies at a set time, all groups staying 6 feet apart, just walking a set path in a circuit around the neighborhood.

Same as every year, Virgin sacrifice followed by vampire orgy.

What is wrong with you? You cant possible ensure social distancing at an orgy.

Darkness....

Shutting off all the lights, ignoring the doorbell and watching a movie.

WaterVsStone

Same. I was considering giving out candy, but nah. It seems like most people aren't planning on taking their kids out anyway in my area.

Sounds like a typical Halloween to me!

Tradition.

Like me n the boys always do: play horror games together on Discord. Gotta keep up the tradition, worldwide pandemic or not!

Who Knows....

Hopefully by being scary/weird for the poor kids on our street who have been cooped up for 6 months and deprived of a social life. I don't know if we're handing out candy because Covid, etc. but we're going to try to make it special for the little folk somehow.

Wholesome Moon

This is the first time in a long time that it'll actually be cool on Halloween in my area. Plus we're going to have a full moon.

So. Roasting marshmallows over a fire pit. A movie screen & projector setup outside in the edge of the woods, with a marathon of Paranormal Activity movies playing. Homemade hot cocoa kept warm in a crock pot.

My fiancee & I curled up under a blanket, snuggling while watching the movies.

Thinking Ahead

A guy decorated a length of PVC pipe and attached it to the handrails along his front steps, angled down toward the sidewalk. He can shoot candy down the tube and kids can put their buckets under the pipe and catch it, hands-free. I can't wait!

History is made on a daily basis.

Indeed, there is little more exciting than having witnessed the accomplishments of people like Barack Obama, Stacey Abrams, and Greta Thunberg knowing that they have firmly reserved a space for themselves in history books.

Of course, most of the people who paved the way to make the world what it is today have long since passed away.

Not all of them, though!

It may surprise you to learn that there are people who made an indelible impression on history who are still much alive today.

Some of whom even continue to make a difference to this very day

We all indulge in fast food from time to time.

Even if we know what we're eating isn't exactly healthy, sometimes the salty, fatty mass-produced food is the only thing we want.

Resulting in our making weekly, if not daily, visits to a nearby chain.

Then, of course, there are the chains that we make every effort to avoid.

We've likely tried places at least once simply because everyone is always talking about them.

But after having one bite, we have trouble seeing exactly what all the fuss was about and vow to never return.

Even if it might be the only option at a rest stop or even the only available food for miles, we instead opt to wait and be hungry.

People Break Down Which Movies They Wish They Could Watch Again For The First Time

There are several movies I've watched so many times I think the viewings outnumber the days I've lived.

And much like a favorite tv series or movie, who wouldn't love to start again anew?

Experiencing that first time but with that feeling of... "I'm gonna love this forever."

We never appreciate the first time enough.

But that's life.

Warning: there are spoilers below.

Non-Sexual Things That Strangely Turn People On

There is no one way to anybody's heart or libido.

Sexy doesn't always have to equal raunchy.

I've known people turned on by music, books, nature, and even funerals (don't ask).

What starts someone's engine is a mystery.
