Happy 2nd Anniversary to Halloween Haiku!

The honest truth is, I almost skipped celebrations this year. It’s hard to find something to smile about with the all world turmoil, pandemic fears, and sadness over the loss of lives taken by Covid-19, but what else is perseverance for, if not to stand up to fear and death by finding the things that make us happy and living our best lives?

People keep saying ‘I cant wait for Fall’  but no one knows what the rest the year, much less October,  has in store for us. So, let’s channel our energy into making our realities good, right now.

If nothing else, it’s a helpful distraction.🎃

TUESDAY

Halloween Haiku Zoom Watch Party
This will be my first time holding a Zoom party. It should either be fun or a total disaster, entertaining either way!

Grab your favorite cocktail, snacks, and come hang on Zoom to celebrate two years of Halloween Haiku, while we watch Night of the Living Dead, dir. By George A. Romero, 1968.

I’m going to try and share my screen with the movie playing. You’re free to stream the movie on your own, via whatever platform you choose and just follow along in the chat. Night of the Living Dead is public domain and can be found here, or on other streaming services.

Link to Zoom room will be posted on Tuesday, April 28th. Please check back here or on Instagram.

The movie starts at 7pm PT/9pm CT/10pm ET
