Annual traditions are looking very different in 2020 ― from Zoom Mother’s Day brunches to distanced birthday barbecues. Naturally, Halloween is getting a similar treatment in the age of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Each Australian state and territory has devised rules for safe trick or treating involving wearing masks and physical distancing.
The funny folks of Twitter have found humour in the spooky holiday’s 2020 fate.
We’ve rounded up 35 tweets that sum up Halloween this year. Enjoy!
The Halloween decorations in my yard are all tombstones with plans I had for 2020 written on them.

Reading what everyone's doing for Halloween on the NextDoor app, and a lady just said she's doing "Trick or Yeet," where she just throws candy at people standing on the curb, and honestly that's the most 2020 thing I've read all year.

I could come face-to-face with a realass werewolf this Halloween and it still wouldn't rank in the top ten scariest shit I've seen in 2020.

9yo, looking at a neighbour’s Halloween decorations: it’s funny that they put masks on the skeletons, but the masks aren’t covering their noses!
9yo: but ... I guess skeletons are already dead, so they can’t get COVID
9yo: they’re just being supportive

My 5yo asked me if he should be a Minion or a “Corona Pilot” for Halloween and if this doesn’t sum up 2020, I don’t know what does.
