Top Ways We Will Celebrate Halloween This Year

Halloween will be different this year like everything else in 2020. But, that isn’t stopping us from celebrating Halloween. A new survey shows that more than two-thirds of adults in the U.S. plan on celebrating.

The top 5 things we plan on doing are:

1) Watch a scary movie at home - 33%

2) Decorate the house - 28%

3) Carve a pumpkin - 28%

4) Hand out candy - 26%

5) Wear a costume - 19%

Although the CDC lists trick-or-treating as a “high risk activity”, 49% of Americans say they think children should be allowed to go trick-or-treating. Among parents of young children (0-6), 55% are in favor of trick-or-treating, and that goes up to 60% among parents of children aged 7-18. Nevertheless, four in 10 say that children should stay indoors for Halloween this year, including 30-31% of parents. This according to YouGov.com

If kids do go trick-or-treating, 69% of those surveyed believe the children (and parents) should be wearing a protective mask, while 24% don’t believe a mask is necessary. There will be fewer homes handing out candy this year. 30% plan on treating kids this Halloween, but 26% said they would normally, but the coronavirus has them rethinking the idea.

No matter how you celebrate, have a safe and happy Halloween!
