The weather is dropping. Leaves are starting to crunch beneath your step. Dunkin Donuts and Starbucks are releasing their pumpkin spice flavored items. That only means one thing — Halloween is coming!!!

2020 has been pretty hectic this year, so the spooky season is a fun way to cheer yourself up. With COVID-19, Halloween this year might be difficult to celebrate. There’s even a possibility that we won’t even be able to go out and trick-or-treat, although most villages are allowing it for now. A fun alternative that you would be able to celebrate Halloween is staying in.

“I think I’m just going to stay at my house this year,” junior Jalen Myers said. “It’s too risky going out and I can just hangout with my friend.”

Just imagine, you and a friend or two stay in. You get dressed up in matching costumes and do a photoshoot. Then, you get comfortable and binge watch scary movies all night with Halloween candy that you brought from the nearest store (while wearing masks in the store of course). 

“Halloween was always fun for me, but this it’s going to hard for me to celebrate,” junior Maggie O’Brien said. “I’m either going to hang out with friends or just stay inside and watch movies.”

There are many alternatives for Halloween. There’s baking spooky little treats, carving pumpkins with family or friends, or even making Halloween crafts you found off of Google. 

“There’s not much you can do for Halloween this year anyways,” junior Saul Roman said. “I’m probably just going to watch movies or just go out with friends.”
