As one of my favorite holidays approaches I'm feeling extra anxious to find out if we even get to have it.  There has already been so much cancelled or postponed. Los Angeles has banned trick-or-treating, and the bigger part of the country’s biggest Halloween events are canceled, including Halloween Horror NightsWalt Disney World’s Oogie Boogie BashKnott’s Scary Farm, the Greenwich Village Halloween Parade, and the West Hollywood Halloween Carnival. Even the production of Peeps has been pushed back to 2021. Side note, my son and I just watched an old school episode of Unwrapped on how Peeps are made while we were waiting for my momma in the doctors office.  The candy industry isn't ready to just give up though, the Hershey company launched a color-coded interactive map to track the Covid-19 risk level of every county and offer safe trick-or-treating suggestions. Not to be out done the Mars Wrigley company, which makes M&Ms, Skittles, and Snickers, has its own online plans, launching a digital Treat Town where kids can virtually trick-or-treat with trusted contacts and actually receive real candy afterward via vouchers. Users can even decorate their in-app “doors” and create costumed avatars. I knew when Spirit Halloween opened that we were going to be ok.
