It’s spooky season again, which means there’s plenty to see in the name of kids being adorable – with a Halloween theme.
While some kids find Halloween a bit too much, for others, it’s one of the best holiday celebrations of the year.
Orin Ball is one little lad who can’t get enough of Halloween – and he’s not afraid to show it!
Like many youngsters, Orin is currently spending a bit of extra quality time at home with his mom, Lindsay.
His older brother’s weekdays are spent doing virtual schooling, which means little Orin has a lot of pent-up energy, and no-one to play with.
So Lindsay decided to take Orin for a walk one day, and the pair came across a Halloween setup.
There were a number of decorations lining the neighbor’s house, but Orin was particularly taken with a Jack Skellington inflatable.
It waved around in the air, almost looking as if it was dancing, and little Orin was all over it.
Sensing an opportunity to capture something hilariously adorable, Lindsay whipped out her phone.
She filmed Orin dancing along with the Jack Skellington, which was doing some crazy forward- and backward-bending in the breeze.
Orin copied the inflatable’s moves like a professional, bowing, waving his arms, and even tilting backwards when the inflatable did an impressive backwards bend.
According to Orin’s mom, her cheeky son has always been a bit of a clown.
So it wasn’t unusual for him to imitate the Jack Skellington when he first clapped eyes on him – just Orin being his usual goofy self.
Speaking to Fox 10 about her son’s hilarious dance moves, Lindsay added:
“In fact, he had been doing it for a good while when I finally decided to pull out my phone and record it, because I thought my parents and in-laws would get a kick out of it. As a family, we love to laugh, and we’re so happy that Orin’s dance moves have brought a smile to so many people’s faces!”
It’s definitely the sort of video we needed to see today, especially as social distancing will inevitably change the way Halloween has to be done this year.
According to the CDC, many traditional Halloween activities pose a risk for spreading COVID-19.
But there are still some low-risk activities that we can all enjoy in our Halloween celebrations this year.
These include carving or decorating pumpkins, holding a virtual Halloween fancy dress competition, having a Halloween movie night with the people you live with, and hosting an in-house scavenger hunt.
Also on the list of low-risk activities is decorating your home with spooky items, and Orin’s neighbor has done a great job.
While not everyone will want to have trick-or-treaters paying a visit this year, getting into the spirit of things (geddit?) and making your home look like Dracula’s castle is a great way to demonstrate your love for the Halloween season.
And if you get your hands on the right sort of decorations, you might just find your home surrounded by young kids like Orin, dancing away in time to your Jack Skellington.
