If You See Blue Pumpkins This Halloween, This Is What It Means
- We’ve all seen, or owned, those hard plastic, orange pumpkin buckets as kids you trick or treated with at some point, but parents want you to be aware of blue ones you may see this Halloween
- A blue bucket signifies a child with autism, and one mom’s viral Facebook post helped spread the word
- She has a 3 year old non verbal child & wrote "This year we will be trying the blue bucket to signify he has autism. Please allow him (or any other person with a blue bucket) to enjoy this day and don't worry I'll still say 'trick or treat' for him," she wrote. "This holiday is hard enough without any added stress. Thank you in advance."
- Like I said before, the post went viral and other parents are adopting this technique for this year as well
