Happy Halloween

Pumpkins IMG-20211030-WA0001Things are a bit brighter this Halloween. Health officials have given the go-ahead for kids to go trick-or-treating but cautions remain: stick with members of your household, put treats outside, and wear a mask inside or when in outdoor crowded spaces.

Things look good here in the Seattle area. There’s a clear blue sky today, and although it was 34 degrees last night, today’s high is predicted to be 56 degrees. Remember to take coats for the little ones who are trick-or-treating as the temperature drops, especially for those with skimpy costumes. See my article for other tips for Halloween night.

About 65 percent of Americans plan to celebrate Halloween or participate in Halloween activities this year, up from 58 percent in 2020 and compared to 68 percent in 2019 before the covid-19 pandemic.

Households with children are estimated to spend more than twice the amount than households without children – $149.69 compared with $73.57 – on Halloween items.

So, whatever your plans, have a fun and safe Halloween.
