All the Cool Stuff Happens the Year Halloween Is Basically Cancelled

We aren't really doing much this Halloween as a Nation/World. Some people are trick-or-treating as safely as possible, but many are not due to COVID-19. This makes all the cool stuff happening this Halloween unfortunate. Three awesome things that normally would make this Halloween cooler are as follows:

1. It's a full Moon. Halloween having a full Moon hasn't happened since 1944 and one occurring on this holiday is just tonally appropriate. Ghost, goblins, witches, and a full Moon!

2. Halloween is on the weekend. You can go trick-or-treating and then sleep in because Halloween is on a Saturday. You don't have to wake up and go to the school or work the next day sore from running around or suffering from a candy hangover.

3. It's Daylights Savings, "Fall back." I hate DST in general as it throws everyone off. That said, this is the time when we get an extra hour of sleep in the Fall. Not only is it a weekend as my second point remarked, but you also get a whole extra hour of sleep! You can party all night...if it were safe to party.

Those are amazing benefits to it being Halloween this year...except we're in a pandemic. The irony would be hilarious if it weren't so tragic.
