As Halloween looms closer, many parents question whether or not there will be a Halloween this year as COVID-19 continues to be a daily challenge for the country. It’s not wrong to predict that trick-or-treating could be slightly different this year, as we grapple with the uncertainly of what’s safe and what’s not. But one thing is certain, seeing both fall and Halloween decor adds some joy and normalcy back into our lives that we’ve all been craving.
