6. Go Trick-or-Treating
A distinct memory in every child’s Halloween is going around various houses to get your candy fix! Many areas in Singapore are known for going the extra mile with elaborate decorations in their homes as the little ones run around for their trick-or-treating. However, many of these estates may be hesitant to welcome trick-or-treaters with open arms this year considering the current safe-distancing regulations. If you would still like to bring your children out for some fun, do remember to mask up and keep safe!
Alternatively, you can choose to go ghosting instead! A lesser known Halloween tradition, ghosting refers to when you pass a bag of goodies to a friend or neighbour by leaving it on their doorstep, along with a note to pass it on. The recipient will then pass on the goodwill with a new treat bag for someone else. This is definitely a better way to spread some socially distanced spookiness this Halloween!
7. Stay Home Halloween
