Here Today, Gone Tomorrow!

November Theme Day: If this lawn decoration is not gone already, it will be removed by tomorrow. Thank goodness! After tonight, I'm ready to say good-bye to Halloween. The urchins at the door were delightful, but there were too many of them. Our neighbors tend to take Halloween decorations down quickly, unlike Christmas scenes, lights, and wreaths which seem to stay up forever!

Today in MN History: 1991-On the three days following the “Storm of the Century,” (The Halloween Blizzard) Duluth receives 36.9 inches of snow, the largest single-storm total in state history at the time. (Historical information: mnhs.org)

  1. After your first para I was thinking "A least they take them down, not like Xmas decos that stay up forever", then you said it!

    BTW, I can't believe that shops here are ALREADY playing Xmas carols, and Melbourne has its big (fake) tree up already. Soon there'll be no need to take things down at all.

  5. Hooray! I'm not a fan of halloween, in fact we 'celebrated' by leaving the house and having fish and chips on the beach instead. So I'm glad I wont see any more pumpkins!! Thanks for helping me celebrate 'the day after'!

  6. Kate, Great idea for our theme day! I was in class tonight, but my husband said there were only 30 or 35 kids that came to the door tonight, and none of them small kids. As I was driving home, there were hoards in other neighborhoods. At least you won't be eating left over candy for days ;^)

  7. Yup, when the pumpkins go down it means the christmas decorations go up. Looking forward to see what replaces that pumpkin :)

  15. It's possible some holidays halloween dissapear, but other ones will be created to maintain consumerism.

    Trick or treat?

    I choose truth.

  17. I guess that pumpkin can get deflated and put back in the attic. But I bet you'll be seeing some smashed pumpkins here and there along the streets, at least for a little while. Hopefully little animals will make good use of them and they'll be gone before too long.

  18. Haha.. would it be turned into pumpkin soup the next day? Not for this pumpkin I see...

  19. I'm ready too. Too much for too long. I can't believe all the Christmas decorations up already.

  20. Yes, I wish that Christmas decorations (and carols played in stores, and the pressure to buy lots of gifts) would be confined to a shorter season too! (Sorry if that offends anyone!)

  25. Yep they will all disappear. Someone stole one of our pumpkins last night. I was hoping they would take both of them so I don't have to mess with cutting them up for the compost pile :)

  26. Kate, thanks for visiting my blog! As I tried to explain there, the photo is not targetted, it is just the expression of people who are not satisfied with their lives, because of the system. Things are so complicated here... My best wishes to you!
