“It’s the most frightening, scary, spooky, creepy, ghastly, ghoulish, grisly, wonderful time of the year.” – Anon.
Wednesday’s Challenge on partner Susan and my other site was STEAMED LENSES.
This year the scariest thing about Halloween might be seeing people out and about not wearing a face mask and putting the folks they meet at risk for a pandemic cocktail.
COVID has turned the world into a spookier place and I bet witches, goblins, Frankenstein and Snow White will refrain from visiting many neighborhoods that they have easily frequented in the past.
The above photo was taken today in a local hardware store and the number of such displays has dwindled drastically rom last year. The manager of the outlet told me that they were not really expecting a lot of people to purchase scary paraphernalia this year due to the COVID virus.
Many markets have placed their loaded cases of pumpkins ( large and small) out in the aisles for sale but the supply of the candies and other treats for that night might not be sold this year.
The bloody virus over the past number of months has postponed many weddings, graduation parties, family reunions and a host of other social activities that were symbolic in the pre virus days.
Do you expect to see scads of young trick or treaters walking up the steps to your front door this year or have you written off this traditionally scary day with the fear that an invisible monster ( worse than Dracula or the Mummy) might make life unpleasant for you and yours?
Whatever happens be safe. Keep social distancing .
Happy Halloween to one and all.
