Despite our hopes, the pandemic insists on persisting for what looks like another entire year. It’s disappointing, of course, because we can’t return to our normal lives, especially with the holidays coming up, but we shouldn’t let it ruin our fun! As it’s right around the corner, here are some creative ways to celebrate Halloween during COVID-19.
Focus on Your Decorations
While the main event of trick or treating may not be entirely feasible or safe, you can focus instead on the spectacle of the holiday. After all, part of the fun of Halloween is seeing the neighborhood dressed up with spooky decorations and lit up with colorful lights. So this year, shift your attention to turning your home into the ultimate Halloween funhouse. If you’re unsure where to start or need an extra hand, that’s a great reason to hire a professional holiday decorator. They’ll know just how to add that special touch to your home to set it apart from the rest of the neighborhood.
The Pumpkins Endure
In keeping with tradition, one of the best and most creative ways to celebrate Halloween during COVID-19 is by decorating or carving pumpkins. It’s a fantastic way to let your kids play a part in decorating your home, and the results can really wow onlookers with their artistry. Pumpkin carvings are an art form we only get to experience during this particular time of year, so you should absolutely take advantage of it while you can.
Build a Haunted House
Since your kids can’t really roam the neighborhood trick or treating, build them a haunted house to enjoy in your backyard or in the house proper. This gives them a few thrills and chills within the safety of your home, and it gives them someplace to wear their costumes. This haunted house can then double as something akin to a fort for a family movie night with an appropriately spooky atmosphere.
