"It's decorative gourd season, motherfuckers," as the timeless McSweeney's ode to Autumn once declared. And it's all happening: the Pumpkin Spice Lattes are being poured all over town, the Halloween candy has already turned up at the office, and the decorations have started to trickle out on to stoops. Soon we'll be enjoying the annual ritual of slaughtering a tree and dragging its lifeless body through midtown, but first we celebrate the season of the dying leaf.

This jack-o-lantern (made from a pumpkin + a symbol of childhood torn to shreds) was spotted in Brooklyn earlier this morning—have you seen any signs of the season around? Send us your photos—the more over-the-top and haunted the better.
