The world is scary enough right now, who needs Halloween, right? Wrong! Trick or treating sadly seems to be off the table this year. I can’t see Zoom being able to solve this pickle. It’ll all make for a scary story to tell at future Halloweens. My trick or treating days are behind me and I don’t have kids, but I still love soaking up this time of year.
Luckily, the plans we have in our household are conducive to social distancing. In the next few weeks, I’m looking forward to: a lantern-lit tour of an old cemetery, a spooky outdoor theatre performance by candlelight, checking out the local Halloween decorations, and of course, plenty of spooky movie nights and pumpkin-laden meals (pumpkin lasagna, anyone?)
Here’s to making the most of scary times. Have a great weekend, everyone.
