What Does A Blue Pumpkin Mean This Halloween?
With it being early October and the weather is finally starting to feel like fall. That means Halloween is just around the corner.
If you have kids lie I do they are already working on their costume and who they want to be this year. My daughter Addy is set on Dorothy from the Wizard Of Oz and my son Grant is hard at work on his costume. He is always looking to do something unique and he makes them himself.
With the coronavirus on everyone's mind, there are ways to make it safe for the kids to trick or treat this year but If you have a child that suffers from severe food allergies, Halloween is not the coolest of things for them to attend. With the possibility of something with peanuts or another potentially dangerous allergy causing ingredients out there, they tend to stay at home.
Now some homes have pledged to offer up allergy-free treats instead. These families hand out toys or other goodies during Halloween. These families mark their homes with a blue, or teal pumpkin on their doorsteps. Kids with allergies know that they can visit safely and get small toys or presents instead of candy.
The 'Teal Pumpkin Project' is a trend that I hope spreads and kids in this area can enjoy some safe Halloween fun.
