Here’s How You Can Still Have a Hap-andemic Halloween!


People may presume that this Halloween is going to be a downer, especially with the Charmaine Nazzjonali even advising against large parties and gatherings as such. Yes, this pandemic is on our tail, but you can still enjoy Halloween this year.

All you need is a group of close friends or family (6 in total), an adventurous personality, sanitiser, that precious mask of ours, and THIS list of ideas.



A Nice Halloween Family Party (of 6) including Halloween games

Who doesn’t love a house party? (not more than 6 people and suggested, close friends and family). Decorating your house into a sinister-looking one whilst dressing up in your cool and eerie costumes. Set a snack bar, and play some interesting, familiar games. May we suggest games such as Salem, Mafia, Werewolf or a classic Murder Mystery Game.

Go on a Fun Ghost Tour (in groups of 6 or less)

Nothing is better than a long-lasting walk searching for ghosts on Halloween.



Irrespective of whether you are a believer or whether you just want to make this Halloween memorable, get yourself in a group of 6 or less, put on your masks (the COVID kind) and take a stroll along the most haunted and most historic places in Malta such as Birgu, Valletta and Mdina.

Organise a Halloween Movie Night

Grab six, or less of your friends and plan yourself a spooky, Halloween-themed movie party. Watch all your favourite thriller and Halloween movies, with some warm buttery popcorn, nachos flooded with cheese or some spongey eyeballs.

No one ever says no to some classics; ‘Nightmare before Christmas’, ‘The Addams Family’, ‘Ghostbusters’, ‘Trick or Treat’ or ‘Hocus Pocus’!
