People in Toronto are going all out with their Halloween decorations this year
Though there may not be any trick-or-treating going on in Toronto this Halloween — okay, there may be a bit — a whole lot of residents are still keeping the spooky spirit alive by decorating their homes.
Many of the displays that people have spotted around the city have been clever, unique and frankly hilarious:
While some have been just plain creepy:
The biggest trend this year, though, seems to be a topical satire of the shitshow that 2020 has been.

While others are commemorating the failures of our sports teams, who had just as bad of a year as the rest of us:

One of the best displays shared online is this one, showing a group of masked skeletons trying desperately to escape from a dreaded SARS-CoV-2 virion:
And ones that use unique ways to deliver treats to kids, such as the newly-popular candy chute, are pretty awesome, too:
Others came up with even more creative ideas, like candy picking from a tree:
Whether citizens are planning on following the advice of health officials to abstain from distributing candy this year or are planning on defying them, it's nice to see the entire community getting into the season and keeping things as festive as they possibly can be for this undoubtedly bizarre iteration of Halloween.
