Are you decorating your lawn this year?
How will you trick-or-treat?
Will you resort to Rube Goldberg-inspired candy-dispensing machines?
Celebrate with a smaller group?
Or keep any candy-scarfing and scare-giving to your own immediate household?
I’d love to hear what everyone is planning, so share any thoughts, worries and suggestions in this thread.

Let the discussion begin!
Well here's one way to handle it. "How a Toronto plumber is making Halloween safer — by installing 'Candy Chutes'"
Well okay, I'll start. We're wondering if there's a way to do a scaled-down version of the usual door-to-door festivities. Costumes and candy outdoors with a few neighbours and friends. To give some semblance of normalcy without having to Purell every 15 seconds.
I'm not doing anything and seeing if there's any fallout from my 6 and 8yo. Cruel?
I am organizing a hell night with my kids. The good stuff like soaping cars and playing Nikky-Nikky Nine doors. Time to take back the streets!
Side note- the Scary Stories to Tell in the Dark movie was way better than I thought it was going to be. Can't go wrong there if your kids are looking for a spooky movie.
I feel terrible for the kids! Halloween is the best. Hopefully they can still wear costumes to school/ daycare/ over Zoom and eat way too much candy.
Now that G is 13, we will probably eat candy watch scary movies! But we really miss the neighbours -- it's such a wonderful annual tradition.
well I spoke to soon. Halloween is now being discouraged in hotspots like Toronto. https://www.cp24.com/news/ontario-says-no-trick-or-treating-this-halloween-in-covid-19-hotspots-1.5150912
and anyway, it doesn't seem like Halloween is going to be officially cancelled, at least not nationally. https://www.thestar.com/politics/federal/2020/10/13/sweet-no-need-to-cancel-halloween-dr-theresa-tam-says.html
