post-halloween depression syndrome


Feeling down and extremely lethargic after a wild, rambunctious party in the weekend? Do you feel teary-eyed when you think that you have to clean up all your ghoul and gory decorations for the next year? Do you feel sad that you only get to wear your awesome Halloween costume once?


If you answer yes to any of those questions, what you're experiencing is probably post-Halloween depression (PHD). And we know exactly how that feels. It happens every year.


The good news is we know just the cure. So without any further ado, check out our top five cures to help you overcome a serious bout of PHD.


  1. Leave your decorations up until you're ready to decorate for Thanksgiving or Christmas.

Hey, if you don't want to, there's no need to hurry. And nobody can force you to do that. So let those bat garlands hang in the ceiling for a while. Set your scary doorbell on for a while. Display your jack-o-lantern pumpkins for a few more week until they gather molds and start to reek.


Who cares if the rest of your neighborhood is putting up Christmas decorations? The most important thing is you're doing your thing. And if the face the grim reaper makes you happy even if it's already December, so be it. If they start to complain, you can always say that you have a The Nightmare Before Christmas decoration theme.


  1. Throw another costume party.

Yes, we know. We're a little hangover ourselves. One day is just not enough to flaunt that sexy Halloween costume you've planned and worked hard for days just to get that perfect, gorgeous look. So instead of keeping your pumpkin princess costume away to never see the light of day, throw another costume party.


Thanksgiving is just around the corner so why not throw a costume-themed dinner for your friends and family? We're sure your PHD-stricken crowd would welcome the change. Plus, the idea is a way of getting closure, you know? A way to help you move on and patiently wait for next year (wink, wink).

You can start shopping online for women's clothes that you can transform in to a costume. This will save you from the stress.


And if you plan your Halloween costumes all the time, this tip can help save you from the hassle of bulk buying. And if there are any sales, you can save more bucks.
