How Many Pumpkins does it Take to Make a Halloween?

I finally have all my Halloween decorations up and guess what? There seems to be a vast quantity of pumpkins. Everywhere. I have them as bowls for candy, on flags in my windows and hanging from the eaves outside. 

I have far more pumpkins than any other icon. 

The tally stands at a witch, a pumpkin in a witch’s hat, a skull, a candy corn bowl, 3 pumpkin bowls, a black cauldron where the cats sleep, two eyeballs (because they come in pairs, a ghost with a pumpkin, a black cat with a pumpkin, and 12 other pumpkins.

Okay I do have the oak leaf garland in my dining area but there are mini pumpkins nestled inside.

I need to branch out and get a spiker and another couple of ghosts, and a few cats.

I did add a ghoul with a rose to my front door and 3 mini tombstones.

And yet, still the preponderence of pumpkins bothers me. So, after Halloween, I’ll be searching for additional Halloween decorations and hopefully adding non-pumpkin items for next year.

But truthfully, I’m thinking the odds might not be in my favor. There are pumpkin donuts and pies and breads and lattes that are brainwashing me into thinking pumpkin all the time.

Perhaps I could buy the pumpkin based food and be happy. I did buy pumpkin spice cookies from Sprouts. They make me very happy, kinda like a gingersnap dunked in pumpkin egg nog.

So what is your favorite subliminal pumpkin cult treat?
