As we practice social-distancing, many people are celebrating special occasions in unique ways. From weddings in the street to virtual birth announcements, the world has definitely found some creative ways to #StayConnectedTogether while we're under a mandated quarantine.
It turns out, people enjoyed being a part of Van's celebration. Many commenters wished him a Happy Birthday online, and lots of locals drove by to toot their horns in support. Stephanie said afterward, "Just wanted to let you know how thankful we are to have such great neighbors!! We had so many 'honks' from Van’s bday signs! I asked him this morning how it made him feel and he said 'it felt pretty magical hearing Happy Birthday honks all day'."
Van also said “I felt like people really did care!”
The family is very appreciative that so many strangers took time to say hello and help with Van's virtual festivities. This serves as a great reminder how easy it can be to make someone smile during this time.
