CHAPTER 4: The Times They Are A-Changing
Entry #61: This Is Halloween (In Quarantine 2020)
Happy Halloween! I'm finally winding down from an actual small, but eventful day. I, like the rest of you, well I hope the rest of you, celebrated all hallows eve from home with my family and no one else. I swear I don't understand how people were partying with large groups... trust me I saw a few down the street from me. It's crazy because Ms. Rona is coming for the rest of the year, so that's on them. Obviously this year I dressed up as my dual persona as the warlock. This is the first year we are literally all together on the actual day of Halloween. It was special because our boys get to fully experience Halloween in the home that we grew up in. My nephews went as Ghostface and a WWE wrestler. The kids went trick-or-treating with their cousins in a small group and they say that they had fun. I'm glad they did, because fun is hard to come by during these corona days. I stayed home ready to pass out candy to eager trick-or-treaters... except NO ONE CAME. My baby sissy Dash finally made her way back to our home for the first time in 9 months. She got tested for Rona and of course, she tested negative. I have gotten that test numerous times now, so I'm obviously okay and stable. It was so nice to finally be able to hug a family member who doesn't live in our house 24/7. We need family during these hellish times. As long as they are corona free and healthy, they are more than welcome into our quarantine bunker for a visit. Honestly, Dash and I just relaxed and watched vintage Disney Channel Halloween cartoons. We are 90's kids, and our minds need the 90's right now. That was the definition of normal for us. Eventually, we needed a break from sitting around and waiting for no trick-or-treaters. So, we went out on a quest to trick or treat as nearly 30-year-olds. Mind you, 30-year-olds CAN trick or treat as well, lol. Venturing out onto the streets in our witch capes we realized life truly looks like the purge. No one was passing out candy. No one was walking around. 3 houses were having some sort of mass maskless parties. Other than that, nothing. Literally nothing. At least we had the beautiful blue moon to guide us and be our light as we played spooky toons from Nightmare Before Christmas and Hocus Pocus. As "Come Little Children" faded into the midnight sky, the kids came home with a full bucket of candy and happy smiles behind their masks. Halloween 2020 was not what we asked for, or wanted. But we made do with what we got. I'm proud of that. And I am forever grateful we were able to make some special memories with our boys, and selective loved ones, throughout the Quarantine 2020 spooky season. I'm glad I finally got to see my sissy and kick off our holiday traditions, all leading up until Christmas. It's been a rough few months, but days like today give us room to breathe, and that is honestly what we need as we move forward.
