It’s a spooky time.
Oh, and it’s also almost Halloween.
Franklin Street won’t be closed off to traffic, and crowds of thousands won’t be gathering, parents are pondering what to do about trick or treating and kids are wondering whether they will be allowed to grab candy without knocking on doors.
Because of the coronavirus pandemic — and maybe because of the election — It’s a Halloween very different from others. But that doesn’t mean we can’t at least celebrate the holiday by decorating appropriately. In fact, maybe because we can’t participate in so many traditional holiday rites, it’s a time to decorate even more.
At least some local households think so.
