It’s October 1st and Halloween is in the air. Yards are filled with decorations and doorsteps have Jack-O-Lanterns. Pumpkin spice is in the air. But what happens once Halloween ends? Do you dedicate a whole month to Tom the Turkey or jump right into being holly jolly? Here are the most common post-Halloween moods:


1. Still Super Spooky 

This mood refuses to accept that Halloween has come and gone. They will still plan and attend Halloween parties the whole week or watch scary movies to keep the spooky mood going. 


2. “Alexa, play All I Want for Christmas Is You by Mariah Carey.”

November 1st, 12:01 a.m., Christmas music is blasting, plans for decorating have already begun as well as planning what gifts you will have to buy for all your friends and family. 


3. “Thanksgiving is the best holiday.”

The turkey, side dishes, pies, parade and football games fill the air. So why are you rushing to Christmas cheer when there is still a whole holiday in-between (and we aren’t talking about Veterans day or Election day). 


4. “I don’t care, I still have my pumpkin spice latte.”

This mood does not care what holiday has passed, what holiday is coming or even when the appropriate time is to start celebrating. As long as it is still fall, leaves cover the ground and they have a PSL in their hand, all is well in the world.
