Will we have a Halloween this year?

Halloween is going to creep up on us fast! But it's not going to be the same this year, you know? With everyone's afraid of Coronavirus (and rightfully so), we'll probably see a huge decline in regular Halloween activities.

Trick-or-treating, handing out candies to kids, dressing up and going out to Halloween parties, none of that will probably be happening this year. Halloween falls on a Saturday which makes this year suck even more. We can't even enjoy a fun spooky night!

Many theme parks have already pulled the plug on their Fall festivities like Universal Studios' Horror Nights and Knott's Berry Farm's 'Knott's Scary Farm.' The Queen Mary has also cancelled it's annual Dark Harbor event, which drew a record 140,000 visitors last year. Just like many of the things we took for granted, it appears Halloween is another casualty of COVID-19.

Tom Arnold, a finance professor at the Robins School of Business at the University of Richmond told Yahoo! Finance:
