Almost 11 months into 2020, it feels like nothing can scare us anymore. After a monthslong quarantine due to a deadly coronavirus, murder hornets and widespread toilet paper shortages, how could Halloween possibly compete?
Well, people all across the country are stepping up to the challenge of making the spooky season extra special this year (even though trick-or-treating won't happen as usual in many places). From skeletons on Zoom to pandemic pumpkins, these Halloween decorations have apocalyptic vibes that only 2020 could inspire.
In this display, shared by a Twitter user in Maryland, skeletons are using the video-chat service everyone loves to hate. For an even more realistic touch, the colleagues on the screen are so clearly over it. Let's hope the afterlife isn't one eternal Zoom meeting.
This skeleton in Hoboken, New Jersey, has the right idea about work-life balance. Professional on the top, pajama party on the bottom! Perfection.
If skeletons can use Zoom, why not pumpkins? This jack-o'-lantern is the creation of Diane Vosick in Flagstaff, Arizona.
Sure, the pumpkins in this display aren't the scariest, but its creator, James Worsham, owner of Handy Dandy Productions in Nashville, Tennessee, was smart to embrace the terror that is 2020 itself.
Marija Lasic's and Joshua Davis' skeletons in Cleveland, Ohio, are wearing personal protective equipment and being chased down by balloon-sized virus particles — which pretty much embodies this year. Extra creativity points for the parent-child duo hoarding toilet paper on the roof.
These pumpkins, made by Jamie Colman in Seattle, bear a striking resemblance to the image of the novel coronavirus from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Celebrating Halloween means there are still two more months left in 2020. But this household in Norwalk, Connecticut, deserves all the praise for the wishful thinking.
May your Halloween be spooky, safe and Zoom-free!
