People Are Making The Best Of Social Distancing by Holding Neighbourhood Happy Hours Each Evening

It looks like some good has come of social distancing practices during the Coronavirus pandemic around the world. People have been coming out of their homes of an evening, and, while staying metres away from each other, have been enjoying neighbourhood happy hours with others in their street.

During stressful and isolating times like these, it is still important to maintain communication with those nearby, especially the elderly and those who might not be coping as well. And setting a time each day to step outside your home to catch up with neighbours while still maintaining social distancing is the perfect excuse for a cheeky drink or two!

It is easy to see the joy in the small ways that people are finding comfort and a sense of normalcy amid the pandemic. Funny, isn’t it, that in times like these new friendships can be made and the good in humankind comes out. Better than squabbling over toilet paper.

Some have even started neighbourhood dance parties and distance games.

Even if your neighbourhood has been practising social distancing for years, now might be the time to pop some happy hour invitations in each other’s letterboxes and bring out the lawn chairs! Draw chalk boxes on the street, pump up the music and let the kids dance inside their box. What a wonderful sense of community you could create in a time of stress and solitude!

Will you give it a go? It’s quarantini time!
