The invitation signs to celebrate Halloween are already out on the roads. The stores fill up with many varieties of candies, cookies, and costumes.

A week away to the spooky night.

I just got Treat Map app. It seems our neighborhood will do traditional events, but we are still thinking about how to do the best festivities when virus in mind, and how we provide the treat safely bagged and the kids.

Many ideas came up in discussions:

- The parties will be in the open air.

- Everyone keep their distance and wear face covering.

- Following the the Treat Map for trick or treat and the costume wave parade.

- Some haunted houses will be put the black and orange balloons as a sign.

- Candies will be in individual safe bags for trick-or-treaters.

Some residents will be leave the candies in the drive way or carport, either on the table, in the Garden Candy, or in the Candy Tree.

Don't be greedy, and sweep all candies for yourself. Be aware! The Witch are watching for the Greedy!

Keeping the distance, some residents will be passing candies by a long pole, a pool net, or rackets.

We, in this neighborhood, want everyone safe but still able to enjoy the holiday and festivities.

Happy Halloween, Enjoy the Spooky Night, and be safe!
