I recall a couple of years ago there were pastel Day of the Dead decorations. I don't celebrate DotD, but even I know the bright colors on any DotD decor represent various aspects of the holiday
so if you trade the bright colors for pastels you're not truly representing the holiday properly.
Yeah, someone probably bought it because pink & light blue are their favourite colors, but I haven't seen any pastel DotD stuff since then so someone probably set those companies straight.
I am a traditionalist, orange, black, yellow, some purple & of course red for Halloween but I know that every year there's some new trend that's everywhere, like sequined pumpkins, pink & blue velvet pumpkins, lately gnomes for every holiday & then some, & I just don't put them in my cart but I know someone keeps buying them even though it's not me.
I don't mind cute stuff, you gotta have something for kids plus some vintage/vintage repro stuff is supposed to be cute, & I have some cute stuff, but I look at a lot of it this way, at least that Halloween stuff exists at all since that means someone is decorating & celebrating "our" holiday.
But seriously kids, I wanna know which one of you keeps buying these gnomes. You will put on a list & be punished accordingly!!!
