 Yes, let's tie another emotionally loaded thing into whether or not we address the pandemic.
 
2020-07-13 11:07:17 AM  
Pleeeeaaaase, because one of the kids wants me to duplicate this, and has declared I can "make it even better!"

Do you know how many lists I got put on for googling "children's extra small straightjacket and limb restraints"?

Yeah and Thanksgiving should be a smaller affair this year. Also Black Friday needs to be banned. Make all the bigs sales online, because it is going to be a mess if allowed as usual.

Imagine the timeline, Thanksgiving/Black Friday spread, two weeks to symptoms, ten days after that on avg for most people who are hospitalized are admitted, that puts it at the week of Christmas. What a fun holiday. Grandma will be dying on a ventilator at about the same time lil'Timmy is opening up the gifts she gave her life to get at a good price.

/lost my mom the week before Christmas, it really kills the vibe.
//takes this shiat serious people, we are in for the long haul now.

Smart people will delay the Halloween tradition to keep it alive.
Stupid people will celebrate the Halloween tradition to kill it.

No.  You do not want to disturb Gay Christmas.

is it really necessary in the middle of July? Why is this entertainment?

Masks can double as costume accessories. Can't wait to see what the "slutty covid patient" costume will look like.
 
2020-07-13 11:54:50 AM  
Just make sure the kids are all wearing masks:

The hard part will be finding the gurney to tie the whole costume together.

It's outdoors. Masks are already common for that time of year. Just make sure everyone is socially distancing and I don't see an issue with it, frankly.
 
2020-07-13 12:01:58 PM  
They should cancel Halloween regardless of the plague.  "Send your kids out to extort strangers and allow them to fill their gullet with as much processed sugar as they can ingest" shouldn't be a thing in any civilized country.

Except for grubby kids (potential infection vectors) digging their hands into candy buckets.

There is, however, opportunity for somebody to market a hands-free candy dispenser.

:D This is the natural conclusion of cancel culture and I for one can't be happier about it. The same people cancelling people for jokes they made on twitter 10 years ago deserve to have their party spoiled in kind.

We don't know what is happening three weeks from now with this, let alone three months from now, other than it is unlikely to be drastically better, and could possibly be drastically worse.

I will say that as a parent it is extremely unlikely my two small kids will be knocking on neighbors doors this October.  What we might do is arrange a parade of kids through the neighborhood during daylight hours, spacing families out.  And probably try to pre-can some sort of candy solution.

Really not sure yet on any of the important details.  Our neighborhood is a mix of young families with kids and older folks.  It's like we're designed for this kind of thing to go poorly.

TheraTx: is it really necessary in the middle of July? Why is this entertainment?


The lockdown started in mid-March (at least, for those of us in the Northeast). That's 4 months (17 weeks) ago.

17 weeks from now is November 9th.

// "necessary" might be pushing it, though
// can't farking wait to have y'all's grubby children (even odds whether they're wearing masks) and their dirty hands touch my door, doorknob, candy dish and every piece of candy in it, and generally leave trails of kid-germs and disease (even when there isn't a pandemic on) all over the place

Try doing that on any other day of the year, and see if CPS doesn't get involved.

Halloween should go back to it's roots.  Carving turnips to keep people away from your house on the one night of the year where God was too tired to protect you.

I'm going to sit on my ex-wife's front porch and drink Nosferatu (Great Lakes, look it up, it's amazing) for 2 hours whether kids are wandering the streets the Saturday evening before Halloween or not.  No, you cannot have my fun.
 
2020-07-13 12:16:22 PM  
Don't ban it.  Make everyone have to dress as a COVID virus, and if you are touched by another trick-or-treater the Natiional Guard shoots you dead.

You know, a realistic representation of what is actually happening today.
 
2020-07-13 12:17:07 PM  
I look forward to seeing all the people that are too claustrophobic or asthmatic to wear masks to the store don one for Halloween
 
2020-07-13 12:20:47 PM  
Halloween 2020:

*  Full moon
*  2 extra hours due to time change
*  On a f*cking Saturday.

OF COURSE IT'LL BE CANCELLED BECAUSE OF IDIOTS

Think of all the spirits of the covid victims coming back on Halloween.  I hope they choose to haunt the puckering pumpkin-head in the White House.

You can't cancel Halloween. Its October 31st, and consistency in the calender is kind of important. Unless you want to declare November 0.

It's already cancelled, sort of. My daughter has worked at Spirit Halloween the last several autumns and has already been told they will be not opening any stores. At least locally.

/Or she was not asked to return and that is the story she is telling us.

She'd be smart to skip the job this year, but it does look like they've started their pre-season hiring.

Realistically, grandma will be dead a week before Xmas. I don't believe a lot of patients malingering longer than 2 weeks past the first onset of symptoms getting you admitted to the ICU.
