Christmas? Fourth of July? Easter? You can keep them… Halloween is the absolute best holiday. It is perfect. You can be as weird as you want, and you get to eat all the candy! There is nothing better. Unless, of course, you can’t eat all the candy…
This holiday probably isn’t so much fun for those that have to worry constantly for the health and safety of a child due to a food allergy, or if you are a kid who walks around in costume but can’t take the treats. It’s for these Halloween revelers that some brilliant soul thought up the teal pumpkin.
For several years now, teal pumpkins have been popping up in neighborhoods all over the US. They symbolize a safe place for those with sensitivities to traditional Halloween goodies to trick-or-treat. Some of these houses have candy as well as a non-candy alternative, like bubbles, glow sticks, etc. Some stay away from the sweets all together. Either way, these homes are a welcome sight for parents and children who want to engage in the fun of the holiday.
Not surprisingly, our community has homes participating in the teal pumpkin project. Below is a list of streets where you will be able to find non-sweets for your trick-or-treaters. If you know of anymore, please feel free to add them in the comments!
We hope you all have the happiest Halloween. Stay safe, and stay spooky!
