Halloween party time for adults is out, but the kids should be able to go trick-or-treating safely. After all, they'll be outdoors, the treats they get will be packaged, and everyone will be masked.

The great white north, eh?
It is such a shame about Covid hitting this particular halloween.
* it falls on a Saturday (averages one year in seven)
* full moon (averages a bit under one year in 29)
* combine those two, it is something that only occurs on average every couple of centuries.

It would be the perfect year for a pretty epic halloween, but it will be pretty muted instead.

In my city they have asked people not to trick-or-treat. I tend to agree with Dr. Feelgood that it should be possible to do it responsibly, but I suppose the issue is that not everyone will be appropriately careful. Still, it is disappointing.

I have to stay in, I take immunosuppressant medication for my autoimmune disease and I can't safely be around groups of people. My husband has a behind the scenes seasonal weekend job at a renaissance faire that's taking place despite the pandemic, so he's going to be working. He said I could come to the faire and hang out with him if I wanted to, but even in the building where he works, other employees come and go, so I would have to wear gloves, goggles, and an N99 mask the entire day. And if I went out into the public space to walk around the faire, I'd have to try to maintain social distancing among a crowd of 20K+ people. So that's a big Hell No. I'll spend my day watching old Halloween movies and then fix myself a mug of apple cider and go sit on the back porch and look at the moon for a while next Saturday night.
