In the last few years, I’ve only gotten a few trick-or-treaters.
This year, I won’t be handing out any treats due to the coronavirus epidemic. I usually get raisins, although my daughter has scolded me about it. That’s a healthier treat for me because I’m usually eating the leftovers.
Put candy in piles on a table in the driveway or at the edge of your property, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends as a moderate risk activity for this coronavirus year.
Parties with your family only, virtual costume contests, carving pumpkins with your family or with friends socially distanced in the yard, and movie nights or a scavenger hunt in your yard with your family are other CDC suggestions.
Avoid high-risk activities such as indoor Halloween parties, haunted houses, traditional door-to-door trick-or-treating, and hay rides.
My big Halloween treat was a WhatsApp call with my daughters. I told them my goal is to be alive next summer so we can visit.
Another treat is eating chocolate cake. Last night I ordered gluten-free pizza, pasta carbonara, and chocolate cake from a local pizza place. Leftover pasta carbonara and chocolate cake for breakfast is a pretty good treat.
