After a month or two of excitedly preparing for Halloween, our favorite holiday of the year has come and gone. And while there are some folks out there who see the passing of Halloween as the beginning of the Christmas season, whether it be through listening to holiday tunes or stocking up on gifts, there are also those of us in mourning of All Hallows Eve.
Halloween is a special time for many of us, a series of weeks that we look forward to every year. From the candy to the cult films to the costumes—what's not to love about Halloween? Well, for those of you feeling sad that you'll need to wait 363 days until next year, take a look at these 27 pumpkins that are equally sad about the passing of time. These rotten, molding and decaying jack-o'-lanterns may not brighten your spirits, but they'll remind you that at least you're not a dying winter vegetable. Feel free to let us know which sad pumpkin is your favorite on our list in the comments section on Facebook.
