Jean C Gordon Asks What Are You Doing for Halloween?

Like so many other things, Halloween has taken on a different character this year. Trick or Treating, parties, school costume parades, haunted houses--many people are uncomfortable with these traditional activities in 2020. But that doesn't mean families can't celebrate the holiday. 

Here's an idea the head of our church's Sunday School came up to take the place of our usual Haunted House the older kids put on for all the children in our village: a drive-in carved pumpkin competition. The pumpkins will be displayed in our church parking lot October 24 so families can drive around and pick the one they like best. The winner will get a yet-to-be-decided prize.

And no one will go home empty handed. Every child who attends in costume or not will receive a free book from the church Book Nook, where I volunteer. The Book Nook is also offering free Halloween costumes all month long. Many of the costumes are new, donated to the church by a local store after Halloween last year.

So, you know what I'm doing for Halloween. What are you doing?

And Keeping to a Holiday Theme . . .

Did you miss Caro's Gift in the Small-Town Christmas Wishes Series written by six Sweet Romance Reads authors last holiday season because it was Kindle only? You're in luck. It's now available for Nook, Kobo, and Apple Books, as well as print.

  1. What a thoughtful and creative celebration your church is providing for the children, Jean!

  2. The last two years we've been in NJ with our granddaughters. I don't know what will happen this year. At least they are decorating their house.
