Has the ongoing coronavirus pandemic ruined your plans for Halloween this year? If so, fear not as all hope is not lost. You might not be able to go trick-or-treating and you might not be able to host a fancy dress party, but you can still have a spook-tacular time…
Here’s everything you need to do if you want to enjoy Halloween this year, despite the lockdown measures that are, in many parts of the UK, still in place:
Indulge in your favourite sweet treats
Halloween is traditionally a time for indulging in a gluttony of sweet treats… don’t let coronavirus take this away from you! Regardless of whether you can go trick-or-treating or not, you can still enjoy some ‘me’ time this Halloween with an assortment of sweets and chocolates.
In fact, the fact that you can’t go trick-or-treating with your kids this year means that you have full control over what sweet treats you indulge in. You don’t have to rely on other people to fill your children’s buckets with nice things — you can fill your own bucket with whatever you want. If this means going all out and customising your own Dallmann Confections chocolate box, so be it. Whether you choose to fill your box with their delightful caramel latte truffles or whether you instead opt for their luxurious lavender treats, the choice really is down to you.
For once, you aren’t going to be forced to eat sweets you don’t really like. If that doesn’t lift your spirits this Halloween, nothing will!
Cook up a spooky snack
You and your kids might find yourselves housebound on the night of Halloween, but that doesn’t mean that you can’t have a frighteningly fun time. If you and your littles ones cook up a spooky snack together, you’ll be sure to forget all about trick-or-treating.
Whether you try your hand at caramel apple s’mores or attempt to make ghost pizza bagels, cooking up a scary meal is the perfect way to enjoy a Halloween at home with your kids. For a list of terrifyingly terrific snack ideas, be sure to check out this Good Housekeeping article.
Perform a tarot card reading
Whether you consider yourself to be an expert tarot card reader or not, this is a fun and frightening way to enjoy a night in with your family on Halloween. All you need to do is get yourself a pack of tarot cards, light a few candles, dig out your best head scarf, and release your inner Mystic Meg!
If you would like to partake in a professional tarot card reading this Halloween, you could always hire a professional to perform a reading via Zoom.
Are you determined to have fun on 31 October despite the coronavirus pandemic? If so, be sure to put all of the above advice into practice. As long as you stay safe and remain sensible, this could end up being your best Halloween yet!
