Removing past events altogether from widget

When an event has passed, can the event actually be removed from the widget? I know once the month has gone, these events don't show on the website but are still stored in the widget.
I have quite a few from Feb-March that I have manually deleted but if the widget deleted them automatically it would make it a lot easier :)
