Things that may become obsolete post-pandemic
Will Halloween ever look the same?
We all know the world has been changing at an exponential rate, but the introduction of the pandemic has put that change into overdrive. Our communities and daily lives already look so different, but while many people are just waiting to "go back to normal," they might be missing the fact that "normal" no longer exists.
For instance, our idea of Halloween may be on its way out. Trick-or-treating has already been banned in Los Angeles, USA, because kids going door-to-door and collecting candy from strangers poses an obvious risk of spreading the virus. Instead, the county's public health department said residents could organize virtual parties and car parades.
This moment in time happens to be the intersection of pandemic, mass globalization, and innovative technological advances, all coming together to radically disrupt the simple things we took for granted for so many years.
