I do not think Trick or Treating would be appropriate in the current circumstances. Although I am very pleased that in the village where I live now, they only tend to call at houses with a pumpkin on display which means those who don't want to be involved can easily avoid it.
Most parents I know are planning on doing something at home instead, or planning a walk to see the decorations but without the door knocking.
As it falls on a Saturday I wonder how many teenagers/youngish adults will have Haloween parties at home that weekend, given the restrictions on pubs? I expect there will be quite a few...
This is our first year of living in an area that is not as deeply rural as where we lived from 2004 to the start of this year where the nearest houses were nearly a mile away and we had farms on both sides of our residence then.
There are children near to where we now live, but this year, the parents who I understand normally call with their children on such a night, all with Halloween costumes, etc, all abided by the advice to hold their celebrations at home.
I had a chat with the woman who runs my local Spar on Saturday and she has said she has only sold half the Halloween stock she has got in which is stuff like chocolate, sweets and novelty face masks, plastic toys.
Luckily, she forecasted it was going to be a washout this year, so she ordered less stock this time round, but she has said there is still alot of unsold stuff she is unlikely to get rid of. I suppose, anything costume related can be packed away until next year, although at this rate we'll still be subject to Covid restrictions.
