Halloween 2020 will go down as one of the scariest ever. The pandemic is causing many celebrations to be changed in the U.S. this year.  Studyfinds.org , presents a   OnePoll survey of 2,000 adults, half of them parents, showing most Americans will be extra careful this Halloween, but still intend to celebrate.

Nearly 75 percent of parents say they’re taking their kids trick-or-treating, but that on average, they’ll only let their child knock on five doors for treats. A third of parents say the house they do allow their kids to trick-or-treat at will be those of neighbors they know and have already checked in with to make sure they’ve tested negative for COVID-19.

In addition, half of parents say that trick-or-treating is a tradition that is simply too important to skip this year. One more finding: 38 percent say they’re excited to take a year off from handing out treats this year, even though they plan to buy them, as they are saving more treats for themselves. Sound familiar Lance Tormey?

One way to squeeze more fun out of a limited Halloween is to start sooner. "The poll finds many people will be getting a jump on the festivities this year to bring some more spirit to the toned down holiday. Nearly half (45%) say they’re decorating their homes earlier and the same number are planning to eat more candy from the comfort of their couch."

You had me at more candy but then lost me when you suggested a horror movie marathon!
