Halloween Is The Perfect Holiday For 2020
Remember in December 2019, when we couldn't wait for 2020. One of the reasons was because all the major holidays were going to fall on a Friday or Saturday. July 4th fell on a Saturday and that meant your employee gave you Friday off for a three-day weekend. We still got the three-day weekend but we really had no place to go and no place to watch fireworks.
Christmas falls on a Friday which means that we get three days to celebrate the big holiday. New Year's Day also falls on a Friday and most places close on Thursday, which means that we have four days to bring in 2021. I have a feeling that we'll use all four days to say bye-bye to 2020.
So what about Halloween? Halloween falls on Saturday and it's (nearly) perfect for 2020. It follows the COVID-19 guidelines, so there really is no reason to cancel it.
Here are other reasons to keep Halloween this year:
Most costumes already have masks.
Lots and lots of costumes have gloves.
Almost all the costumes are only worn once...except my Tigger suit.
Trick-or-Treating means no crowds staying in one place for long. This doesn't apply to Trunk-or Treating.
Halloween doesn't involve hugging anyone. Some of us have been wanting to embrace that for years.
Halloween will have an extra hour (daylight savings) and there will be a full moon. We think the universe owes us in 2020 and this is one way that they can pay it back.
