6 Ways To Celebrate Halloween Safely This Year That DON'T Include Going To A Crowded Party

Just because it's a holiday, doesn't mean there isn't still a pandemic going on.

Halloween is no doubt going to look different this year. Everything this year has been different. But despite that, you can still celebrate the holiday.
While that might not and shouldn't be a giant Halloween party with loads of people, you can still have a good time and celebrate. Here's a list of fun ways you can still celebrate Halloween, and stay safe at the same time.

1. Movie Night


Grab a couple of friends and have a spooky movie night! You can even still dress up in costumes. Make some popcorn, grab some apple cider, and watch some scary movies with your friends.

Netflix has a couple of great ones including, Hush. This movie shows the horrifying scenario of an intruder breaking into a deaf person's home in the middle of the woods, with the intent to kill her.

2. Haunted House


A haunted house is the perfect way to still get out during Halloween, dress up, and get a good scare. You can grab your significant other to hold onto, or a group of good friends and go in.

You'll get all the jump scares you can physically take, while still staying safe. Click here to find the scariest haunted houses in your state!

3. Visit a Pumpkin Patch


If you're not as into the scary and spooky stuff, but you still want to celebrate Halloween, this is the perfect one for you. Visit a pumpkin patch near you! You can walk around to find the perfect pumpkin, take cute pictures, and have a fun, wholesome time with your friends.

Once you find that perfect pumpkin, you can take it home and carve or paint it with your friends. Click here to find a pumpkin patch to visit!

4. Corn Maze


This is an activity you can do with friends that could be either spooky, or just fun! You can definitely go to a haunted corn maze if you and your friends are jonesing for the spooks, or, if you're like me, you can go to an equally fun, peaceful corn maze and just turn around with your friends.

5. Among Us Game Night


Among Us is a new game that you can play on either a PC or you can download the free version on your phone. The game consists of 4-10 crewmates in space. However one of these 4-10 is an imposter.

Their goal is to kill other crewmates in the game and try and convince them they are not the imposter. The imposter wins if they kill everyone but one crewmate, and the crewmates win if they figure out who the imposter is.

It's a fun way to spend Halloween, especially if you'd rather stay in!

6. Spooky Baking


And lastly, celebrate Halloween with some spooky, fall baking. You can bake anything from spooky cookies to pumpkin seeds. Try one of the recipes from here or just experiment and make your own with your friends!

Maybe they'll be delicious, or maybe you'll just have a good time with your friends. Either way, it's a sure way to have a good time celebrating Halloween, and being safe!

Let me just say, first and foremost, happy Thanksgiving! This holiday is known as a time for families to get together, to be thankful for the blessings in our lives, and to dig into a lot of very delicious food that you'll be having as leftovers for the next week. However, this family time is certainly not without downsides, as we are forced to confront certain family members on matters that should best be left out of Thanksgiving discussion, and in my case, this happens to be my father, who is the only republican in our family (that I know of).

(FYI: Since I still live with my dad, it's not just Thanksgiving when I'm forced to listen to him talk about politics, as I had gotten a taste of where he stands just from earlier this year alone.)

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.

November is such an underrated month. With all the excitement that comes with Halloween ending and the holiday season around the corner, some people skip over it and go straight to their Christmas playlist. For me though, November is the perfect time to compile a playlist of songs that bring on major nostalgia which I think is perfect for this time of year. If you're looking for something to get you in that thankful spirit before you head into the Christmas spirit or something to play while you enjoy Friendsgiving, here are some go-to songs to add to your November playlist.
