Why Halloween 2020 Is The Best & Worst Holiday Ever
Breaking down the good and the bad of All Hollows' Eve this year.
This year started off like all others, with good intentions, plans to improve ourselves, our surroundings and the anticipation of holidays spent with family and friends.
But just three months into the New Year, the world came to a screeching halt as the novel coronavirus swept across the world, infecting millions and killing hundreds of thousands without discrimination.
Birthdays, anniversaries, weddings, and any and all celebrations were canceled and adapted with drive-by celebrations instead.
With no end to the ongoing pandemic – trick-or-treaters, haunted attractions, costume contests, and parties may or may not happen this year.
This year, in particular, was set to be the perfect Halloween night – the holiday is set to land on a Saturday, which would have been ideal for kids and adults alike especially since this year's daylight savings time goes into effect on Sunday, November 1, giving us an extra hour of ghoulish fun.
Not only is Halloween landing on a weekend this year, but a full moon will also be glowing up the night sky which just adds to the whole ghostly holiday vibe.
As the virus continues to loom over us, we may have to refigure how to celebrate Halloween this year altogether.
While we may not be able to trick-or-treat or attend that awesome costume party this year, we can at least still dress up, howl at the full moon, and munch on our own store-bought candy bag.
Whatever you end up doing this year, just remember to stay safe and continue to follow social distancing guidelines, for you, for me, for us all. Happy Halloween!
