CDC: Halloween Has Been Canceled.

CDC: Halloween Has Been Canceled.

Kids, candy manufacturers, and sugar addicts across the country are feeling cursed. First, due to COVID-19, we had an Easter without jellybeans, Peeps, or chocolate bunnies. Now, thanks to the pandemic, the CDC has canceled Halloween parties, indoor haunted houses, and trick-or-treating. Scary. Las fiestas del Día de los Muertos también. ¡Ay, caramba!

Another frightening thought: Halloween is a big, boozy, binge-drinking holiday, and alcohol sales are up already due to the pandemic. That’s not conducive to responsible social distancing.
