Today is Halloween. I don’t much care about Halloween most years, so it seems unlikely that I will that bothered about it this year.
But the world is quite a scary place at the moment. I don’t know if that makes Halloween more or less worthwhile. We’ve basically been experiencing the apocalypse since the end of February in the UK and it started even earlier in some other countries.
It has been quite a slow burner as apocalypses go though. I fully expected the world to be mainly zombies at this point, but it appears my understanding of pandemics (which is essentially informed by B-movies) is slightly inaccurate. Although in many ways the the impressive way that elected officials ignored the clear and obvious warning signs of the impending catastrophe has been akin to many a Hollywood storyline.
And given their continued incompetence I’d imagine there is still a chance we’ll see actual zombies before the year is out.
Obviously being the parent of an active toddler who doesn’t share my views on the importance of sleep means that most days I resemble the walking dead anyway.
So I expect the zombies will leave me alone.
