Geekly World News: October 2020

Level 13

I can’t believe it’s already spooky month. This year, Halloween will be a bit different than we’re used to. Whether you plan to have a socially distanced costumed get-together, brave some sort of trick-or-treating, or simply stay home and watch spooky movies, I hope you have a great time with it.
