Like many other things, Halloween in the COVID-19 era will look a little different this year. Everything from virtual Halloween parties to kids socially-distanced trick-or-treating, this year’s holiday will feel a bit off. Many people might opt to celebrate Halloween from home this year or over video—which will certainly be a unique experience.
That doesn’t mean the show can’t go on however, there are still many ways to celebrate this year’s spooky night from the comfort of your couch. Here are some of our favorite ways to get in the Halloween spirit right from home!
1. Have a scary movie marathon
If there has ever been a year to have a movie marathon in your living room, it would be in 2020. Scary movies are classic staples of Halloween-time. With the weather getting cooler and more people staying inside, having a marathon of your favorite horror films can help revive some of the Halloween spirit.
It’s spooky season! We know that every year when fall rolls around, many of us create our October bucket lists: visit a pumpkin patch, watch Halloween movies, visit a haunted house, and throw a Halloween party. But if you’ve never thrown a spooky event before, where do you start? Now that Halloween is right around the corner, here are some tips, tricks, and treats to planning the best Halloween party for your family.
One of the most fun parts of planning a seasonal party is creating festive invitations. But since this is a kid-friendly party with your family, get your kids involved! Work together to create fun and creative party invites and let your kids decide which Halloween characters, colors, and icons you want to represent. You can take a look at fun ideas here. After you create the invitations, you can mail them out, or you and your kids can hand-deliver them to friends and family while wearing your Halloween costumes to get in the spirit from the start!
