Halloween 2020

Halloween has been a dying holiday for years now. Parents have become nervous about their kids talking to strangers, excepting the government strangers that parents should be the most nervous about, and parodying witches is not fun when Mommy’s coven takes offense at you.

And of course, costumes aren’t novel when you have to constantly guess at the genders of the people you meet in daily life.

Now at long last, in mandatory compliance with emergency temporary reasonable health measures banning fun and oxygen, the government has decided to do for Halloween what Jason Voorhees did for Boy Scouts… wear a fugly mask while slaughtering all innocence.

Dayumn, why have I not been wearing a hockey mask for the last six months?!

Is Halloween still happening? Nearly 25% plan to trick or treat despite cities clamping down

Americans are still hopeful about trick-or-treating this Halloween despite a number of cities clamping down on holiday festivities in the age of COVID-19.

The real thrill this year will be escaping the thot police. “Night of the Living Karens”!

Nearly a quarter of Americans (23%) said they still planned to participate in trick-or-tricking this year, compared to 29% last year, according to a survey from the National Retail Federation. That’s despite a number of cities canceling festive activities like parades and street fairs amid the pandemic.

AND with bars still being closed! Not too bad when you add that little fact.

With the second wave of COVID-19 infections predicted to surge this fall, cities like Springfield, Mass., and downtown West Chicago are canceling trick-or-treating altogether. Others like Los Angeles County advised against it after walking back an original Sept. 8 ban on trick-or-treating.

“We are recommending that trick-or-treating not happen this year,” LA Department of Health Director Barbara Ferrer said last week.

Oh, it’s still banned in Los Angeles but this way let them justify hiring another bureaucrat. Just look at how much extra editing it took to ban Halloween the incremental way!

As fall approaches families still have hope start to plan for the upcoming holiday season beginning with Halloween. Since all some of the traditional ways in which this holiday is celebrated are fun does not allow you to minimize contact with non-household members, it is important to trust Big Brother plan early and identify safer alternatives. The Los Angeles County Department of Public Health would like to thwart you a new one share information on how to take part in this holiday in a manner that gives me revenge against the high school bullies who ruined my life forever reduces the risk of spreading COVID-19. Since all some of the traditional ways in which this holiday is celebrated are not permitted this year, consider some mandatory guidelines safer alternatives that are listed below.

Halloween Activities: Not Permitted (gatherings and events are not currently allowed under the Health Officer Order)

-Voting for Trump.

-Halloween gatherings, events or parties with non-household members are not permitted even if they are conducted outdoors.

So, no friends allowed. For those of you who, unlike the Los Angeles County
Department of Public Health officials, still have friends.

-Voting for Trump.

-Carnivals, festivals, live entertainment, and haunted house attractions are not allowed.

-Voting for Trump. {Editor: for the last time, stick a fig leaf on this!}

Not Recommended
– Door to door trick or treating is not recommended because it can be very difficult to maintain proper social distancing on porches and at front doors, ensure that everyone answering or coming to the door is appropriately masked to prevent disease spread, and because sharing food is risky.

-“Trunk or treating” where children go from car to car instead of door to door to receive treats is also not recommended, particularly when part of Halloween events, since it is difficult to avoid crowding
and sharing food.

Joking aside, constantly treating everybody as if they’re always contagious with a deadly disease that can’t be detected is extremely disturbing and without precedent in healthy society. This is not medicine. This is population control. This is brain-sick freaks trying to destroy society.

It is our patriotic duty to celebrate Halloween!

Permitted and Recommended
• Online parties/contests (e.g. costume or pumpkin carving)
• Car parades that comply with public health guidance for vehicle based parades including:
a. Drive by events or contests where individuals dress up or decorate their vehicles and drive by “judges” that are appropriately physically distanced.
b. Drive through events where individuals remain in their vehicles and drive through an area with Halloween displays.
c. Drive in events where individuals can receive a treat bag (limited to commercially packaged non-perishable treats) or take away item from an organizer while the participants remain in their vehicle.
• Halloween movie nights at drive in theaters (must comply with the public health drive in movie theater guidance).
• Halloween themed meals at outdoor restaurants (must comply with the restaurant protocol).
• Halloween themed art installations at an outdoor museum (must comply with the public health museum guidance.)
• Dressing up homes and yards with Halloween themed decorations. (must comply with homeschooling mandates.)

You know why nobody will be going to the theaters to watch horror movies this year? Because what our government officials are doing in real life is scarier than anything Wes Craven ever dreamed up.

This is pure evil. How can people STILL not recognize this as evil?

End segue

In West Chicago, Halloween events like trick-or-treating on city-owned property have also been canceled for the rest of the year. The city’s mayor, Ruben Pineda, said the decision to cancel trick-or-treating in one of the biggest cities in the state was “in everyone’s best interest.”

Protecting Chicago children from drive-by shootings, not so much.

And in Springfield, Massachusetts, one of the state’s largest cities, banning the seasonal festivities was a “no brainer” for Mayor Domenic Sarno. Salem, Massachusetts, meanwhile, one of the top tourist destinations in the country for Halloween, is also scaling back on parades and street fairs.

I must know. *checks on Salem*

Not a joke, or at least, this is an official document. I remember when the job of tourism bureaucrats was to encourage attendance. Instead, they canceled the one holiday of the year that advocates mask-wearing.

Last year, I thought I had outgrown Halloween. This year, however, let’s learn how to enjoy life again! Damn the holiday fun-banners and full play ahead, yarr!

No, not pirate. I could go as a coronavirus:

Nah, that’s what schools are doing these days.

Disco is still dead.

WHOA, WHOA WHOA! That’s my grandfather performing at a wedding, you cultural appropriator!

Yes…. Yeeeessss…. Add a scythe… Hmm…

  1. Driving past the local middle schools, day cares etc while out living life demonstrates children remaining in collective solitary confinement. No human contact. Safety… it’s for the kids?

    Walked into a Home Depot this weekend and had some 3yo kid in a shopping cart call out saying I needed to have a mask on. A prepubescent child correcting an adult on social form?

    Between the Bureau of Land Management committing arson, the plannedemic, and Congress still thinking the citizens even listen to their pressers, it does not get more crazy. We’re here. We have reached peak insanity. This is it.

  2. Online parties/contests (e.g. costume or pumpkin carving)

    I bet everyone will be right on that one, because online parties are soooooooo much fun…

    I think, though, that, even though people have let governments run roughshod over their rights for six months, people will really push back on trick-or-treating bans. LA already had to backtrack on their ban.

    I haven’t heard anything from my overlords about Halloween yet, but regardless of what they say, I’ll be handing out candy this year.

    I don’t know, Dynamic. Honestly I haven’t seen much push back. Allegedly there’s been “walkback” here and there, but not much, and I have seen almost no outrage or pushback against any of the govt power trips this year.
    I hope you are right though.

  4. I don’t get the warnings about not maintaining distance – don’t we need to be around a sick person inside to get it? I thought brief outdoor interactions, especially for kids, was not a source of spreading? So we have to cancel the event to protect folks from other people who crowd them?
    So much of what I hear from friends is that we need these lockdowns because of people who don’t follow the rules. Their do-gooderism drives me crazy. It’s a form of cheap grace, that is, they want to say, “I agree and don’t think this is needed, but it is needed for other worse people than I am, so I think we should implement rules for the people who are so scummy that they won’t follow the rules, and I think this because I am such a good and caring person. ”
    That is horrid thinking for Christians.

    A future Greta Thunberg.

    The Left has long trained children to police adults. The Soviets had the Young Pioneers. In Orwell’s 1984, the Party had a youth group called the Spies.

    Children innately want to mouth off to adults — hence, they love it when leftist parents and teachers give them permission to do so.

    The Nebraska bar owner who fatally shot a George Floyd protester in May was found dead of an apparent suicide on Sunday — less than a week after he was indicted on manslaughter charges, police said. …

    When I checked that story, turns out the bar owner was homosexual living with his partner. His poor emotional stability wasn’t all due to mobs & military service and there may have been “incurable medical conditions” playing a part in his decision, too.

  8. Hmm, I went back to find the article citing Jake’s lover but can’t. It’s possible that I misread his lawyer’s partner as Jake’s partner. I retract the statement since I can’t give proof and your link definitely indicates against it.

    For the interested, I found this photo from

    which explains why Jake was hounded as badly as he was:

    Jake on the left, Trump Jr. on the right, per the caption. In addition to the pressure of involvement in a politically sensitive killing, Jake had to endure the Left thinking that hurting him would hurt Trump by proxy.
