…   Any true monster fan shouldn't let the calendar dictate how they feel. Do you really think when Frankenstein was terrorizing the local village, he gave a rat's ass what day it was?... 

He got blue(r) on Valentine's Day.

That's all we need now, companies producing blue Frankensteins with green jackets. LOL

I cure my post Halloween blues by shopping the 50-75% off Halloween merch and stocking up for next years display.

Last year, the new Chucky movie, Cult of Chucky was out, so I watched that. Definitely made Nov 1 better. ;D

The Alamo Drafthouse here runs a Monday night horror movie every week. Tomorrow is “Night if the Creeps”! That’ll pep me up... although the only thing that bums me out about Halloween being gone is the return to “normalcy” in stores. Personally, I like seeing jack o’lanterns everywhere.

Even worse than normalcy...big retailers can't wait to shove Christmas stuff down our throats. I'm already seeing "Black Friday" trumpeted. Cripes, years ago retailers at least waited until after Thanksgiving to start the mercenary onslaught. I have nothing against Christmas at all, and I have very fond memories of scoring many a great monster toy for Christmas as I was growing up, but this barrage of greed isn't very pleasant.
ALWAYS MONSTERING...

How sad. Christmas decorations lurkin' over the aisles, at the Hallowe'en decorations. The department stores, retailers and Walgreen's/CVS couldn't WAIT to unload their surplus of Christmas
commodities.  Really...that is the most apropos way to describe the Christmas decor. It seemed that the Halloween decorations were relegated to just one aisle, if that, or less.

Spirits and Halloween Express were pimpin' their usual wares. Especially Nightmare Before Christmas and the new over-produced merch, Disney's Hocus Pocus. Oh?! I forgot! Ghostbusters,
and whatever else that is trendy this Hallowe'en season.:o

Good point!

I celebrate Halloween all year long, whether I'm buying stuff, or enjoying looking at my collection. True, there's something magical about the month of October, but I just refuse to have the big drop off in spirit some people have. Hey, that's how I roll. LOL

Granted, November 1st is very anti-climactic, but I wouldn't necessarily say that it is the most depressing day of the year; after all, the Halloween merchandise and candy is now all 1/2 price (or more). Just the time to stock up....

You bet we stock up on discounted candy after Halloween! There used to be more in my neck of the woods before all the Zellers stores became Target stores which then shuttered their doors after twenty months or so.
