COVID-19 and Holidays

Posted by Merry, Volunteer Mentor @merpreb, Oct 9, 2020

The first holiday to come upon us is at the end of this month. It is Halloween. This means lots of kids, who wear masks, who don't wear masks, who went back to school or who didn't. We live on a dead-end and really don't get a lot of kids unless they are accompanied by their folks. We also get older kids later on. I have to confess I have only thought about this once, but @bustrbrwn22 mentioned this in a post this AM. I think that it deserves its own discussion.

I don't think that we will be turning on our outdoor lights to welcome any tricks or treats. I will not be jeopardizing surviving 23 years of lung cancer to anyone if I can help it. I love and adore kids but they will have to do without my candy this year. I think that it is too risky for everyone.

I know that this sounds hard but the world has changed and we all have to adapt to it. What will you do about this holiday?
