Even a pandemic can’t crush my neighborhood’s Halloween spirit.
Everywhere I look, my neighbors are emptying boxes of decorations and covering their lawns with ghoulish inflatables, gargantuan spiderwebs, posable skeletons and spooky animatronics.
My favorite arts organization – Horizon Theatre Company – caught the spirit and created live, interactive theatrical nights of frights and haunted delights. From now until November 1, you can Zoom nightly with the hilarious, spine-tingling ghosts of Atlanta’s Little Five Points while sipping ghostly cocktails from the comfort of your own home.
How are you planning to safely celebrate “Quarantine-o-ween?” For me, half the fun is opening my door and oohing and aahing at the darling, daring costumes. That can’t happen during a holiday that now requires candy chutes and other socially-distanced, candy delivery systems. So, maybe this is the year I turn out the lights and forego the carved pumpkin. Why roll the dice and risk spreading COVID-19 when I can finish binge-watching the last season of the remake of “Dynasty?”
