But the typical questions people ask themselves as the big day, October 31st approaches  what costume should I wear, how many trick-or-treaters should I expect this year, and is this enough candy for them if Ive already eaten half the bag  might seem trivial this year.

Nevertheless, we must face our fears, be brave, and confront the nightmare legal inquiries in all of their gory glory so that we may decide The Case of Halloween 2020: Will trick-or-treating be haunted or happy in Texas this year, and do I need a COVID-19 waiver?
