The Purple Pumpkin Project
In the past, I mentioned about Teal Pumpkin for food allergies and blue pumpkin for autism. Now, we have a purple pumpkin. Starting this year, 2020, the Purple Pumpkin has a meaning to deal with our pandemic.
The aim of the Purple Pumpkin Project is to keep COVID-19 safety guidelines into handing out treats or going out trick or treating / trunk or treating for Halloween this year.
The Purple Pumpkin has been known for children with epilepsy, in the past, however, now others want it to be a reminder of safety during a pandemic.
Not every house is virus-free! Nor is everyone at a trunk or treat, virus free. Both you and the people handing out need to take precautions.
With the one for the pandemic, they want you to remember safety guidelines when handing out candy or seeking candy such as …
- Social distancing (6 ft. apart minimum)
- Wearing a face mask (not a costume mask)
- Wearing protective gloves
- Giving out Individually wrapped candy
Just to name a few. Some people plan to make candy shoots or do drive thru trunk or treats / trick or treats instead of the traditional way.
