Halloween is just around the corner -- and so is the time-honored tradition of door-to-door "trick-or-treating."

But for some children, trick-or-treating comes with a certain set of challenges.

One mom, Omairis Taylor, recently took to the internet to ask everyone to honor the "BLUE BUCKET" on Halloween night.

Taylor has a 3-year-old son with autism. He is non-verbal.

Last Halloween, Taylor said people would wait on her son to say "TRICK-OR-TREAT" before giving him candy. So she had to explain the situation over and over again for 5 blocks.

"This year we will be trying the BLUE BUCKET to signify he has autism," announced Taylor in a Facebook post.

Her post about the meaning behind the BLUE BUCKET has since gone viral, spreading like wildfire across the internet.

P.s. I have made this post public in hopes you will share and get the BLUE BUCKET message out there for Autism Awareness this Halloween💙🎃💙🎃💙🎃💙
