COVID-19 has ruined a lot of things, like once-almighty gym chains, retail stores, and, for a couple of months, toilet paper stockpiles. It's also put a damper on public gatherings of all sorts, which caused a lot of socio-political contention when it came to religious congregations and even police brutality protests. While at the onset of the coronavirus pandemic, everyone thought that a few weeks of self-isolation would do the trick, it turns out that Holidays, like Halloween, are now "ruined."

While social distancing and mask-wearing mandates vary from state to state, the idea of going door to door to different strangers' houses doesn't sit well with a lot of people, even if they do believe the virus is "a hoax." So what are spooky holiday lovers to do? Give up on showing off their costumes and getting drunk next to a dude dressed as a banana surrounded by Joe Exotics?

These folks decided to do what everyone else is doing "in these uncertain times" and that's move the festivities online to Zoom. Sure, it might not be as fun as cleaning up orange-dyed cocktail and Reese's cups puke out of your carpet, but you can make the most out of the situation by staying in a stationary position and get super creative with the constrictions of being confined within a screen.

That's a pretty great Mavis, and because people aren't going to see the bottom half of you, if Amazon messed up your delivery of the stockings, then you're good.

But the fact that it's Halloween sure helps a lot.
