Halloween Will Be on a Saturday This Year, So Mark Your Calendar
Halloween falls on a Saturday this year, which hasn’t happened in several years. The last time was in 2015 — and, in fact, that was the last time it was on a weekend, period! There will be two weekend Halloweens in a row coming up, though, since Halloween will fall on a Sunday in 2021.
Corona Virus Impact On Halloween This Year
With the ongoing novel coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, the fate of the fall holiday is still very much up in the air, meaning nobody knows right now whether things like parties and trick-or-treating will be safe to do. And with a second wave of the virus predicted to hit in the fall — which is also the start of cold and flu season — things aren’t looking very promising.
Predictions For Halloween Costume:
Halloween will look a bit different this year, given that states are fluctuating between cautiously opening up and then closing down again due to rising COVID-19 cases. Though the majority of us won’t be throwing big parties, if you’re hoping to still celebrate October 31, there are ways to make Halloween feel festive in 2020.
Dressing up, for one, is an easy way to channel your Halloween spirit, whether you’re hosting a virtual costume contest over Zoom or showing off your homemade spooky cocktails over FaceTime.
You can dress up in the comfort of your own home and not leave the house at all, if you so choose. Unless you’re on trick-or-treat duty, slip on your face mask and properly social distance.
