This day is reflected in the colors black and orange, everything is decorated in those colors. Every year it is celebrated with a million children and adults, who organize parties, adorned with scary motifs. It is characteristic for this holiday that pumpkins are dug with scary faces, and a lantern is placed in the hollow of the pumpkin.

Kids with blue buckets for Halloween

Characteristic of Halloween, as we mentioned, is that children carry orange pumpkins and a lantern in the middle. Have you noticed children with blue buckets this year on Halloween? The blue bucket indicates that the child carrying it has autism. The idea came from the mother of a child with autism – Omairis Taylor. She posted a story on her Facebook page, explaining about her three-year-old son who has non-verbal autism. She came up with the idea to explain her son with a blue bucket as an easier way than having to explain in every house why her son could not say the famous phrase “Trick or treat”. Mrs Taylor explains that this was an easier way for her autistic son to enjoy the holiday as much as the other children, without inconvenience or further explanation. Her post went viral on Facebook, so this trend of blue buckets will undoubtedly continue in other years for Halloween.

This post was first published by Mrs Taylor in 2019, and now in 2021 a much larger response is expected from children with autism who will be marked with blue buckets. Sales of blue buckets are also expected to increase in many outlets.

Although this trend has become a viral hit on the internet, there are still many users who are not familiar with this. So spread the word wherever you can, let everyone know. Everyone needs attention and everyone wants to take part in Halloween. All you have to do is pay a little more attention to the children with the blue baskets. Spread the word in your neighborhood and beyond. Everyone has an equal right to enjoy Halloween, without inconvenience and repulsion. Help spread the word about all around you.
