Halloween decorations in March? We are so here for that. Could setting up seasonal yard decorations during the coronavirus quarantine be just the thing to cheer up your neighbors?
One family in Madison, Alabama decided to take the opportunity to communicate quarantine hygiene. Finn Walker, age 15, helped put together their Quarantineoween display. “We didn’t have any good Christmas decorations so we decided to use our Halloween skeletons.
