30. Light party
host an alternative October 31st party on the eve of the Christian feast of All Hallows; the bit of the year Christians remember loved ones past, martyrs and saints (hallows). Make it everything Halloween isn’t by including lots of light, or holding the event indoors rather than knocking on doors, or honouring people’s gifts through a talent show rather than tricks, or organising a treasure hunt as a treat. Add a disco – silent or otherwise. Parents will be sure to donate to ensure their kids are safe.
