Trick-or-treating, pumpkin carving, haunted houses, costume parties. Everyone has their favorite Halloween tradition.
Thanks to the covid-19 pandemic, this year’s Halloween feels a little scarier.
Many of these traditions may be a little different this year. There are some things you may not feel confident doing at all.
That does not mean you can not have fun this Halloween! TownTown & Country & Country provide many amazing safe Halloween ideas!
Watch a spooky movie
From the humorous to the nightmare-provoking, the list of scary movies is endless. Find a good one for your family or, if you feel it is safe enough, close friends. Get some popcorn and drinks and make an evening of it!
Go to a Pumpkin Patch and Go Pumpkin Carving
This may already be a tradition for you and your family. Everyone loves to pick up a pair of pumpkins and carve a cool design or a fun face in them! It is an outdoor activity. As long as visitors practice social distancing, pumpkin picking is completely safe. And pumpkin patches don̵7;t just sell pumpkins. You can pick up other fall favorites like apple cider, pumpkin pie and more!
Decorate your house
Decorating may seem like just a holiday season tradition to many, but you can make some cool Halloween themes. Throw fake cobwebs on the bushes. Put a jack-o-lantern cover on your light pole. Put some pumpkins and corn stalks on the porch. Everyone will do a double take as they walk past your house!
Go on a hike or take a car ride
The autumn landscape can be so picturesque. Take a road trip and enjoy the colorful leaves around you, but make sure you do not get too distracted! If you are more of the active type, take a hike. Get up close and personal with the fantastic autumn leaves!
Bake some sweet treats
You may not be able to get a bowl full of candy this Halloween, so make your own sweet candies! You can be creative while baking with a Halloween theme. Pumpkin cookies are delicious. A haunted gingerbread house can be spooky AND delicious.
Host a virtual Halloween party
You may not feel confident hosting a personal party yet, so hold a virtual party! Show off your suit. Play some games. And best of all, catch up with friends! Do not forget a spooky background!
Create a spooky cocktail
What is YOUR favorite drink? Put a little spooky spin on it. There are many different alcoholic and non-alcoholic Halloween drinks you can try. How does an old-fashioned candy corn sound to you?
Build a Halloween playlist
“Monster Mash” and “Thriller” are two of the most iconic Halloween songs. Still, there are many more you have listened to and love. Put them together and make a playlist. Rock out in your house or on a leisurely hike!
Make Halloween face masks
If there was a symbol for 2020, it would definitely be a face mask. There are hundreds of tutorials online on how to make a working mask. Put a little Halloween spin on your new mask and decorate it. You can even use it as part of a Halloween costume!
