In the recent years you might have seen an uptick in houses that have teal pumpkins. What do they stand for? They're part of the Teal Pumpkin Project that is a nationwide movement to "raise awareness of food allergies and promoting inclusion of all trick-or-treaters throughout the Halloween season."

Basically, you put a teal pumpkin on your porch or walk up and this will indicate that you have a non-food treat option fro kids who have food allergies. With 1 in 13 kids having a food allergy, this is a great way to let them participate in trick-or-treating without having to worry about something they maybe allergic to slipping through. This doesn't mean you can't have candy at your house, it just means you also have an option for kids who can't have candy.
