What Do You Pumpkin?
In the recent years, people in the U.S. are becoming more aware of children’s different needs and preferences and promoting a positive trick-or-treating experience. You might want to be on the lookout for or put out different pumpkin colors. These can be real pumpkins painted or pumpkin baskets of different colors. Here’s what the colors represent:
Teal pumpkins: This indicates the home provides allergy friendly treats (can be non-edible goodies such as small toys, pencils, stickers, etc.).
Dark blue pumpkins: This indicates that an individual has autism or the household is sensitive to the needs of those with autism. If the trick-or-treater is holding a blue pumpkin, it may indicate that their social and communication skills may be different than others. If a household has a blue pumpkin, they may be sensitive to not providing an overstimulating environment.
Purple pumpkins: This indicates that the people in the home want to spread awareness about epilepsy.
