Home Polls Is Halloween Losing Its Luster?

Is Halloween Losing Its Luster?

Maybe 2020 has been scary enough

In a recent Women In Optometry Pop-up Poll, about half of the respondents said that they will continue decorating their offices as they traditionally have for Halloween this year, but the spirit of the holiday seems a little pale this year.

Interestingly, just more than one-third of the respondents (35 percent) said that office staff will be dressing up for Halloween this year, just like always, and an identical percentage said they would not be dressing up. About 6 percent said that the office staff usually does dress up but will be foregoing that this year. Another 24 percent said it’s an individual choice; there’s no coordinated Halloween skullduggery, but people can choose whether to dress up.

The spell of Halloween decorating is a little stronger, with 50 percent of the respondents to the Pop-up Poll saying that they will decorate, same as usual, and 9 percent saying that their decorations may be bigger and better this year as a way to add some extra fun into a difficult year. Thirty-five percent of the respondents said that they don’t generally do much for Halloween inside the office; 12 percent said that while they usually do welcome costumed kids into the office, they will not be doing so this year. Some are making alternate plans, such as having goodie bags ready to provide young patients.
