It’s that spooky time of the year again! And while things may be a bit different this year, there’s no reason not to be able to get in on the fun! Whether you’re looking for fun decorating ideas, how-to guides on making your own costume, or just want to share in some scary moments with friends, The Internet can help you in making the most of your Halloween festivities!
While it’s not anything new, it’s worth mentioning that most of your Halloween needs can be satisfied through online shopping. Whether its Halloween decorations, parts for a costume, or lots and lots of candy, most retailers now do home delivery. Some include Party City, Home Depot, or Hobby Lobby to name a few. Like with many arts ‘n crafts projects, Youtube remains a great resource for how-to guides on making your own elaborate costumes to show off (or scare) your friends and neighbors with.
Those of you still social distancing can still get in on the fun. Consider doing a virtual scary movie night with friends over Skype or using the built in party viewing feature in many streaming services like Netflix and Hulu. This allows users to sync their movies so you can all be jump scared at the same and chat in real time with your friends about whether or not the protagonists should go in the creepy basement or not (by the way, never go in the creepy basement.) Facetiming with friends can also allow for other things like telling scary stories, playing games, or holding a costume contest. With a little effort and creativity, you can make this year’s Halloween one to remember by!
