Some Helpful Reminders for Halloween

by | Oct 29, 2020

👻The spookiest season of the year is upon us!👻

Not only will this Halloween be a Full Moon, but also a Blue Moon (second full moon after harvest). Ignoring any of the superstitious connotations, the Central Office hopes that you’ll have a safe and fun holiday weekend under some beautiful astronomical sights!

 

Somethings to keep in mind as you prepare for the holiday…

  • Cultural Appropriation is something we expect our members to avoid when dressing up for the weekend!
    – If a costume evokes a stereotype, generalizes a group of people based on race or some other characteristic, or to a layperson would be considered offensive we advise you to find something else to wear for the scary outings and parties. (Read up more on cultural appropriation here.)

  • COVID-19 cases are still on the rise!
    – For the safety of all of student members, colony members, and alumni alike, we advise you to avoid large gatherings and continue to social distance.
    – If you are going to a larger event, we recommend that you and your party wear a mask rated for COVID. Halloween masks will not protect you from infection.

 

We’re sure that many of the facilities and events that happen around your community are making some changes to accommodate these two particular contexts for this Fall, but we hope that you will take care to protect yourself, your groups, and your guests should you choose to host your own events.

Happy Halloween & Rah Rah!
