Halloween is not over.

I am sad waking up the morning after Halloween.

My email inbox is filled with Christmas ads and tree sales. The Hallmark channels were already playing non-stop Christmas movies since at least yesterday. YESTERDAY WAS HALLOWEEN!

HALLOWEEN NOT CHRISTMAS.

I always play my own defiant card. I leave the decorations up for a few weeks. The pumpkins, even if they are rotting and full of mold, are too painful to throw away. My crepe paper decorations are hanging by a thread, sideways and mournful, but by gosh they're still there.



I watch all of the Halloween shows and movies I have recorded and refuse to erase. I play the Halloween stations on Pandora in the background.

HALLOWEEN IS NOT OVER.

Nope.

I won't let it be.
