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?

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

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