Masked Trick or Treating

I think we can all agree that this year has been one like no other. The main question in most people’s heads during spooky season was  “How will we be trick-or-treating this year?” Some people made “candy chutes” to safely deliver goodies to the trick-or-treaters, others just handed out bags of candy. As for us we sat down at a table and had our bags spread out so the kids can just come up and take one. Of course, I went trick-or-treating to see how my neighbors were passing out Halloween treats, and because you are never too old for free sweets. Surprisingly, lots of my neighbors were passing it out. Most of my neighbors had their candy safely in pouches so no germs were spread in the process. One of my neighbors had a fishing rod to deliver their sweets. They attached the bags to the hook at the end of the 6 foot rod and had the kids detach them from a safe distance. Although there weren’t as many people passing out candy this year I still came home to a decent amount, due to the large quantity of treats they put in each bag. Now if you think that is cool wait until you hear this! A group of people got really creative and made a drone deliver the candy for them. And of course if you don’t have a drone this wouldn’t be the best thing for you, but if you do, go for it! Now that  we’ve talked about how people are trick-or-treating let’s talk about where. A lot of us laid back on a couch with a bucket of popcorn, stayed home with our families, and watched spooky Halloween movies. But some of us found a way to go get some sweets safely! Lots of campgrounds were blowing up during this time because of how safe it is to trick-or-treat. To get a campground you would have had to get a campsite in the beginning of April! I guess a lot of families were really thinking ahead. Many people had a station to grab some candy and walk around the whole campground. Now that’s what I call real camping!
