What are your thoughts on trick-or-treating this year? Should Halloween be “canceled”, or should it be allowed to go on as normal.
I have never been a big Halloween fan. I remember loving to dress up as a kid but I don’t recall liking walking all over the place for candy. Now, as an adult I think the holiday is ridiculous because of what it has become. When my kids were little I loved to see them dressed up and I loved that they loved Halloween, but again, I was not a fan.
That being said, I think that Halloween is only about candy. Costumes have become “whatever you can pull together”, except those for little kids. All costumes are way too expensive, which is why people make their own costumes. I’m not saying homemade costumes are bad, my mom made all of mine. I’m just saying that rolling up your jeans and putting on a flannel shirt does not make one a farmer.
I think trick-or-treating would be fine, people are wearing masks anyhow!
I think kids should just stay home, though, have parents spend a ton less on candy and costumes, and spend time as a family. Play a game, bob for apples…
