It could mean you support mask wearing, you've individually packaged candy or you've limited touching candy...basically it just means you're trying to keep everyone as safe as you can while still celebrating the holiday.

Purple Pumpkin/Amazon

You don't need to buy a purple pumpkin. You can paint one or put a purple colored pumpkin in your window.

It's not too late to buy a purple pumpkin. You can find them at Amazon, Target and Walmart. Target even has a leather looking pumpkin that's super cute.
