Candy Safely

Halloween is just around the corner and this year, it might look a little different for certain families.

Due to Covid, some families might not be as keen on heading out with their kids collecting candy.

Others will still feel safe doing the usual Halloween festivities they’ve always done and that’s okay too.

It will be important to still act safely and take the necessary precautions if families plan on going out.

Most kids costumes these days come with build in masks anyways so it shouldn’t be too hard to have kids keep a mask on if needed.

I’ve also seen posts of people coming up with safe and unique ways to distribute candy to people passing by.

One post I saw had carved pumpkins on the front of a lawn filled with different types of candy for people to take.

This is a creative and fun way to ensure that people can still go out and get some candy while making sure physical distancing measures are being taken.

It’s easy to relax how seriously we take precautions in a community like ours that hasn’t seen a case in months but that’s why it’s still important to come up with safe and fun ways to celebrate Halloween.

For anyone choosing to stay home and still want to get your kids an assortment of candy, head to Crowsnest Candy Company in the Steiger Flooring building!

I’ve been there twice already and they have so much variety I’ll be heading back there many times in the near future.

I will be enjoying the Halloween weekend with my Crowsnest Candy Company candy at my parents in Lethbridge.

Every Halloween growing up, my parents always bought us an abundance of candy and we would stay in and watch a movie together.

That’s the only way I’ve ever known Halloween to be.

As I got older I obviously realized many families did Halloween differently but my parents always made sure that I had candy to take with me to school the next day so I wasn’t the only one without any.

I never felt the need to get dressed up in costume and go out to get candy.

It’s probably a good thing my parents did what they did anyway because I was scared of pretty much everything growing up so I probably wouldn’t have done very well late at night with scary decorations.

However you plan to do Halloween this year, I hope you’ll do it safely and that everyone will enjoy a fun and safe weekend.

Let’s keep our community happy and healthy!
