Kids Getting Sick Before or After Halloween

Posted by San Luis Obispo Mom on Friday, October 22, 2021 Under: Fall

I love the fall season when the pumpkin patches are open and I can order a pumpkin spice latte from Starbucks. I enjoy the cooler weather and how traffic is less around here from the summer travelers. Don't get me wrong. I love how our county attracts a lot of tourists and seeing happy people enjoying their vacations. I just don't like the car traffic that I have to endure to get around.

Around fall, many farms around here start planning really fun harvest events and pumpkin patches. (See my video reel at a beautiful pumpkin patch in San Luis Obispo.) Especially with kids, I enjoy the fall and Halloween season very much as they allow me to make fun memories that I didn't have the privilege to make when I was a kid. One thing about fall though that I dread and that is they almost always get sick right before or right after Halloween!

There is the mix of awesomeness and worry with fall. It's a very eventful season, especially around SLO County. However, I can't help but feel so bad for my little ones as the weather gets colder and they get sick. Sometimes we'd just be cooped up instead of going out and about. And for me, I'm okay with being cooped up and staying put when I need to because I get to recharge my battery at home.

Here's a list of a week long of trick or treating opportunities throughout San Luis Obispo County this year. See the list of 10 family-friendly Halloween events on this link. It's nice to see that this year is getting more normal but still not completely normal, of course.

It's been a really fun season this year. See our video reels on my SanLuisObispoMom instagram handle to see pumpkin patches that we've visited:
