Ideas to celebrate this Halloween in safe, fun, and unexpected ways!

We are aware that Halloween 2020 is just around the corner, but just like so many other special occasions and events, the 2020 edition of the spookiest day of the year will have to look a little different for obvious reasons–the coronavirus pandemic.

Most traditional Halloween activities pose a high risk for contracting COVID-19 because they involve large groups of people that do not live in the same household. While Halloween 2020 activities must change, we still want people to be able to dress up and have fun for the holiday. All we need is a new plan, a new way to celebrate, probably a virtual or drive-by costume party that lets you celebrate while keeping up the fight against the spread of the virus. So here is how we can celebrate Halloween and this fall season includes:

Halloween Scary Movie-marathon

What’s a holiday without movie marathons, right? As the spooky season sets its tone throughout the month it’s the perfect time to grab some popcorn, huddle with your families and prepare to scream your head off at scary movies.

Halloween Pumpkin Carving Done Right

Nothing will get you more in the Halloween spirit than decking out your house in all things black, orange, and yellow. Throw in a couple of decorative pumpkins and you’re all set. Halloween celebrations are incomplete without some fun pumpkin carvings and Jack-o’-Lanterns. If you want to take your Halloween decoration game to another level start with carving glamorous witches and spooky Medusas to beaded globes and tin men. And no need to worry about being an expert with a carving knife or spending too much money on decorations, because these designs are as easy as carving holes into your pumpkin. Let your imagination run free by decorating them with plant wigs and pieces of cloth after carving out their adorable faces. Don’t forget to take pictures for Instagram and Facebook. How do you ask?

Halloween 2020 Snacking

With Halloween comes a plethora of cuisines, specific to the time and celebration. The vast variety of desserts, snacks, and other appetizers are capable of allowing your taste palettes to party. Before you dive into mains try Halloween cupcakes, Halloween cookies, and all the Halloween desserts you can eat, fill up those tummies with crowd-pleasing and frightfully delicious dips, deviled eggs, and — best of all — cheese. A few of the many favorites are The Graveyard dip, which consists of tortilla chips in the shape of gravestones served with salsa, guac and black bean dip is to die for—not literally! The Ghost Pizza Bagels transforms a slice of mozzarella into a friendly ghost sitting on your bagels waiting to go—boo! Did it scare you? But there’s plenty more where that came from. Just stay home, cook, and stay safe and take lots of pictures for social media with Govision camera sunglasses. 

Halloween Trick or Treat

Our favorite activity every Halloween is door-to-door trick-or-treating—let’s be honest! But, the just this year let’s give tradition a little plot twist wherein individually wrapped goodie bags are lined up outdoors, allowing families to grab them while also adhering to social distancing norms laid down by the government. Safety first and candies next!

Masks aren’t just for trick-or-treaters this year! Everyone—including candy givers—should wear a face covering. A few other instructions to bear in mind, that will come in handy, while handing out candy is, ensure to leave a light on or hang a Halloween sign in your window to let people know your house is giving out candy safely. Remember to socially distance and have hand sanitizer, too. Staying on the move to avoid congregating in one place means more houses and more candy. It is advisable not to reach into candy bowls while trick or treating, and eat candy only at home after washing your hands. Less is more—and keeping your candy crew small this year would be wiser. Trick-or-treating can resort to six people or less. 

Halloween Costume on Point

Just because you’re at home doesn’t mean you shouldn’t step out in your funniest, spookiest, or cutest costume. Cat ears are highly encouraged. A saying that best describes our current global pandemic scenario is ‘better safe than sorry’. So, it stays best in everyone’s interest to avoid gatherings of any size like in-person costume parties. Instead, get your friends and family together for a virtual costume party and vote for the best costumes from the comfort of your couch.

Halloween 2020 Jamming Sesh

There’s never a bad time for a dance party, and streaming services like Spotify always curate Halloween playlists that feature throwbacks like ‘Thriller’ and newer hits like Midnight City. While you’re within the confinements of your home and are celebrating Halloween safely and responsibly, you could jam to your favorite artist and their tunes. And get that playlist pumping with our Govision Vibez Bone Conduction Headphones. It is one of its kind, designed to keep you aware of the surroundings even while you are lost in the world of Halloween music. It has implicit qualities like being lightweight, comfortable, and is an extraordinary alternative to the traditional earbuds. The bone conductions technology enables your cheekbones to conduct soundwaves to your eardrums. Freeing your ears to enjoy family time and answer every time someone calls, while also partying with your playlist on repeat.

Halloween Outdoor Activities 

Beyond the classic fall activities of visiting your favorite pumpkin patch or apple orchard, there are a few indoor and outdoor options that can get you into the spooky spirit. Staying safe this Halloween doesn’t necessarily mean staying cooped up in your house. Take your kids outside for a socially distanced Halloween scavenger hunt within your backyard. They can search for their favorite candy and spooky knick-knacks around your yard or neighborhood. And if you’re a big fan of avoiding activities and you’d rather play the cameraman, use our camera sunglasses to take pictures and record videos of all the fun. You don’t even need to work hard and carry around a camera on a tripod, all you need is a pair of sunglasses. Wear it, own it, and click the record button to retain memories on it.

Few things are better than stepping out into the crisp autumn air, pumpkin-shaped bucket in tow, dressed as your favorite character. The sun setting, autum leaves coating the ground and the competition for Halloween candy is on. But as the coronavirus pandemic continues to affect daily life, many things, including Halloween, seem uncertain. That leaves many of us wondering if Halloween is canceled this year. Not really! However, when you celebrate, please follow the established safety measures to prevent the spread of COVID-19. This includes wearing a face mask, maintaining a safe social distance, washing your hands regularly, and staying home when you feel ill. And make your Halloween celebrations extra special with Govision’s Vibez Bone Conduction Headphone and Royale HD Video and Camera Glasses.
