We’ve seen teal colored pumpkins used to indicate that a house has non-food goodies for trick-or-treaters who have food allergies. Now we have purple pumpkins. What's that all about?
A group of parents came up with the idea to use them to mark “safe houses” - as in the residents there have all been following the CDC guidelines when it comes to COVID-19 and everyone there has recently tested negative.
It's interesting to me that that one of the requirements to call yourself a safe house is that you follow the CDC guidelines and yet one of those guidelines is to not have trick or treaters at your house.
