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.

Small Party

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!

squarefan80

Tradition.

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

Timstinkt

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

Trick Or Treat Party GIF by Fleischer StudiosGiphy

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!

People Divulge Which Brands They Absolutely Swear By

Don't be alarmed: There are some terrible corporations out there (looking at you, Nestle) but there are also some great brands that are selling decent products.

I know, surprising, right? Maybe we've all just gotten used to brands selling things of questionable quality that when we stumble across something worthwhile it stuns us.

Hold on tight when you find a brand deserving of your loyalty!

People shared their thoughts with us after Redditor spwf asked the online community,

"What brand(s) do you swear by and why?"

You know what would be great?

If society could just stop with arbitrary dress codes. If you're not working with the public, why should you have to dress up so much? If you're a police officer, then it makes sense that you'd wear a uniform that identifies you as a police officer. If you're Ted from IT who sits in the backroom all day, I really don't see why you have to come in every day in a suit and tie.

Let's just toss them out, shall we?

"What should be socially acceptable but isn't?"

People Share Their Best 'F**k This, I'm Outta Here' Experiences

As much as many of us don't like to disrupt the status quo, there is only so much time a person can tolerate a miserable situation before things become so unbearable that they ultimately have to peace out.

For some people, it takes a while for them to reach a breaking point. Eventually, there comes a time when they realize their self-worth is more important than continuing to please others who don't appreciate them for the sake of keeping up with appearances.

People Break Down Which Things Always Taste Good Whether They're Served Hot Or Cold

As we enter into the summer months, people now have to decide whether or not they want their morning coffee to be hot or iced.

Lucky for them, it's delicious either way.

One could make an argument that foods that are equally delicious hot or cold are perhaps the best, or at least the most reliable.

And this can include foods which are not customarily sold both hot and cold (cold pizza anyone?).

Redditor NectarineOther4989 was curious to hear which foods people enjoy either hot or cold, leading them to ask:

"What is something that tastes good both hot and cold?"
