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.

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.

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!

There is so much to learn in life.

And once you acquire certain things mentally, you regret it.

How much 411 have you come across over time that made you think... "How can I unlearn that?"

Yeah, not possible.

Knowledge is power and sometimes it's a nightmare.

Don't we have enough to keep us up at night?

Damn curiosity.

Well let's do some learning.

Redditor RedBoyFromNewy wanted to shed some light on creepy issues we need to be discussing. They asked:

"What’s a disturbing fact that not a lot of people know of?"

Life is full of disappointments. We lose out on a job opportunity or the one designer article of clothing we really wanted is not available in our size.

The truth matters.

Something one would think was a given in modern society.

Yet all over the world, there are people so unbelievably stubborn, that they simply refuse to believe the facts.

Sometimes even when presented with evidence.

This could be for something menial, such as refusing to believe that a cotton candy was actually invented by a dentist.

But sometimes, refusing to believe the truth could have serious consequences, up to and including climate change, the effectiveness of masks, and the disproportionate amount of gun violence in the US.

Redditor Lady_Of_The_Water was curious about the many things, both frivolous and serious, people refused to believe were true, leading them to ask:

"Whats something someone thought you were wrong about and ridiculed you for it, but it turns out you were right?"
