I thought I was the only one who's calendar revolves around Halloween activities for the year. I do a yard display every year so it seems I start the juices churning this time of year. Granted, I love the holidays and decorate as such but Halloween/autumn decorating and celebrating gets its start in August and goes through November. It took many years for my husband to get accustomed to this but now he helps me with it.
I go through that mourning period right after Halloween knowing my displays and home decor have to come down. I do keep the fall things up but still, it's tough. Then the snow comes and it is over. (((.
I hate summer because it gets in the way of fall!!!!!!
I understand what you go through after Halloween. I didn't want to take my haunt down! I had spent so much time into putting all of the props and display together, and it all came down in 1 hour. I had such a hard time putting up my grandmas Christmas lights because my mind was always on Halloween. So, your not the the only one.
