A Facebook post from Omairis Taylor has drawn attention to children carrying blue buckets (or anything blue that holds candy) on Halloween this year. If you see a child carrying a blue bucket, it may mean the child is autistic or non-verbal.
Trick-or-treating can be hard for children with autism and those who are non-verbal. KARE 11 from Minneapolis, Minnesota reports that "Michelle Koenig from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania, has a 5-year-old son with autism. He's going out for the first time this year." Michelle told KARE 11, "'It's hard. I think it's hard for them, but it's getting easier. People are becoming more accepting of it and people are aware. It's good and it's getting bet.
So be on the lookout for the blue buckets tonight Bismarck Mandan.
