Halloween is fast approaching, and even though there are safety guidelines for this year's holiday season, such as avoiding trick-or-treating and limiting the gatherings, there are still numerous ways to make the scary event unique and festive. Halloween is far from being canceled this year.

The following activities are some of the most fun and festive ideas you can do this Halloween in a new-normal way. So, prepare yourself and be ready with your costumes because Halloween is coming your way.

Virtual Halloween Party

Quarantine will not stop you from celebrating Halloween this year. Send the link to your virtual Halloween party with your friends and family by using Zoom or Google Hangouts. This virtual party will be festive and fun if your guests decide to put on their costumes as well!


Ghosting is a new term this quarantine season where you will prepare cute and spooky treat bags for your neighbors and friends, but the best thing about it is, you will leave them at their doorstep. Place a note inside that says to create their own treat bag and ghost someone else to pass this new tradition as the world is still in the virus's threat.


Dress up, bring treats and a bag before hopping to your car and driving to the nearest largest parking area around you.

Don't forget your spooky face mask and maintain a distance of six feet from your friends and neighbors gathered in the lot while exchanging treats with one another. As you circle and follow the social distancing protocols, get a very long rope and let others tie or attach the goodies you brought and move the string clockwise or vice versa to share your treats.
