Birthdays, the COVID Way

By Jasmine Loubriel


If there’s something positive coming out of this quarantine, it’s the ways in which we have become more creative. Whether it be with birthdays, graduation celebrations, or holidays, people are finding new, special ways to commemorate and celebrate. Since we can no longer come together at birthday parties and backyard hangouts, people have jumped on the trend of holding a drive-by for people with birthdays during quarantine. Families and friends will join a line-up a block or so away from the birthday destination, their cars decorated with handcrafted signs and balloons, getting ready to honk their horns. Check out the following videos to see some birthday parades!
