In today’s edition of “This can’t be real life” the Calgary mayor in Canada held a presser this week showing residents how to avoid cancelling Halloween and some of their methods are not just bizarre but just plain stupid.
First off on a positive note the Mayor says Halloween and Thanksgiving are not cancelled.
Mayor Naheed Nenshi made the announcement and advised everyone to take extra caution during this year’s festivities.
One method included handing out candy with a large tube to children as seen in the picture below..
However, the city is recommending using many different methods to hand out candy to keep physical distancing measures:
- A ‘candy chute’
- Spacing treats on your lawn on a blanket
- Hanging the candy from a tree
Nenshi said to make sure to wear a mask if kids are going to come right up to you and if you don’t feel well, don’t hand out candy.
“Kids should go out trick-or-treating with other kids in their bubble and refrain from ringing the bell,” said Tom Sampson, Chief of Calgary Emergency Management.
“Make sure they wash their hands when they get home. For extra protection, have kids wear a real mask instead of a costume mask, or under their mask if it doesn’t impact their ability to breathe.”
