Chantilly Key Club Stories: Halloween Plans
This Halloween is shaping up to be a dreary one. I can’t trick-or-treat or go to a Halloween party. I can’t even go watch scary movies with my best friends. But all is not lost: just because Halloween is different this year does not mean it can’t be just as fun. This year has been a lot about adapting, whether that be the way we learn or the way we see friends. Halloween is no different. With many of my friends still quarantining and social distancing guidelines still intact, we have had to totally rethink our plans. One of the most notable changes is probably trick-or-treating. Many of my neighbors have put out little buckets filled with candy and I’m planning to do the same. Although this will give me more time to watch CGI ghosts float across the living room screen, I am going to miss yelling “Lumos” and watching the kids’ eyes gleam as the porch light turned on. “Nox,” I would say, sneakily flipping the light switch off. Again, they would look on in amazement, completely oblivious to how much complex circuits were helping me in that moment. Unfortunately, this year the only audience I’m going to be able to perform that trick for is the neighborhood squirrels. I am still not exactly sure how Halloween is going to go this year but one thing I’m certain about is that just because Halloween is a little different this year does not mean it can’t be just as fun.
