Halloween will hit differently this year, as more people stay home from parties to stop the spread of the coronavirus, and trick-or-treaters will be fewer and far between as towns implement restrictions with parents re-imagining the holiday with social distancing guidelines in mind.
As you may have heard at today's press conference, I received a great suggestion from a young trick-or-treater as we approach 2020's Halloween in the Commonwealth: king-sized candy bars. pic.twitter.com/VMNbR87zXO

This year’s changes don’t mean the opportunity to impress your friends and family with a spooky, stunning, or hilarious Halloween costume won’t present itself.
Whether it’s over Zoom or FaceTime, just for Instagram, or for a small group of people to see in person, it’s still the one time a year to transform into something ghastly, ghoulish, or inspired in exchange for sweet treats. Plus, it’ll be a bonus if your costume already has a built-in mask.
While some are still thinking of costume ideas, we are looking to reminisce on some of the past’s greatest costumes. We want to know what your best Halloween costume of all-time was. Perhaps you spent hours perfecting the makeup or build of a home-made getup? Maybe you honed in on a hilarious local or pop culture moment that made the entire party wheeze with laughter once you arrived? Maybe your sister surprised you by texting a picture of her dressed convincingly as Bernie Sanders and you nearly choked on a bagel laughing.
Perhaps you had a classic, favorite costume you repeatedly wore as your signature look because it was just too good to give up? Whatever the costume situation, we want to see the greatest hits.
Send a photo of your costume and a description of what you’re dressed as to email@example.com, and we’ll publish photos of Boston.com reader’s best Halloween looks. Need some inspiration? Here’s last year’s list.
