Come Saturday night, Halloween in Costa Mesa is going to be a lot different this year, for sure—but for one large group of individuals, it won’t differ from any other year.

Driving around Costa Mesa lately, it looks as if the witches, goblins, black cats, skulls, and skeletons are as numerous as we’d expect—and there are plenty of pumpkins. Still, on trick-or-treat day, the youngsters will have this year’s candy haul somewhat curtailed.

In regular years, officialdom’s warnings to parents are limited to measures like checking the little goblins’ Halloween booty to eliminate unpackaged treats. But this year, in addition to the social distancing measures, the CDC is advising parents with two new DON’Ts:

Do not use a costume mask as a substitute for a cloth mask unless it is made of two or more layers of breathable fabric that covers your mouth and nose without leaving gaps around your face; and

Do not wear a costume mask over a cloth mask, which can make it too hard to breathe. Instead, consider using a Halloween-themed cloth mask.

Even so, as the daylight hours shorten (that always helps foster an appropriately spooky atmosphere), Costa Mesa’s Halloween night will at least provide a welcome break from preoccupation with COVID-19, political campaigning, and the other travails that have made 2020 so memorable.

The one group that hasn’t noticed any changes this year? The spiders. They’ve been everywhere, spinning their webs in doorway corners and under outdoor furniture, laying their eggs, and generally getting prepared for Halloween exactly on schedule. Area homeowners whose homes are currently on the market have already been on cobweb-clearing duty…

How spiders know that October 31 is the day that celebrates them, it’s impossible to say. But by mid-November, most will have retired for the year—which is just fine for all concerned.
