Trick or treating banned! Halloween is very different this year.
Many children and avid trick or treaters will be disappointed this year to know that trick or treating has been cancelled. Any of the areas in the UK that are in lockdown cannot experience the normal acts of celebrating Halloween.
The rule in the UK in certain areas is the ‘rule of six’ which will still apply even on the holiday. People may not get fines if they are outside the house but if they go into anyone’s houses then the people could face up to a £200 fine.
Many people living in the specific parts under the restrictions have to abide by these rules; all pubs, bars and restaurants close at 10pm, only table service, face masks are compulsory and the rule of only six people at a time.
Any areas excluded from the certain restrictions will only be allowed to trick or treat in groups of 5, this is because the person giving out the candy from each house hold will count as another person in the group. The coronavirus rules and restrictions, along with affecting children’s memories will also affect all of the crazy Halloween costumes as it is obligatory to wear a face mask.
Everyone must accept and abide by these rules as there could be some serious consequences for the people who don’t. Stay safe and enjoy Halloween!
