We don't really celebrate as a family, this is as far as we go pumpkin carving, it's starting to get alot more fashionable over here now @newbud

Hi @carolgs, l think you solved the mystery for me. I've often wondered where the idea of carving pumpkins for Halloween and putting a light inside. You called your pumpkin Jack O'Lantern. It started as a way to hono(u)r the dead by Celts. Halloween is Oct. 31, and l'll tell you what goes on until then. In the mean time, pick your largest pumpkin and have fun carving it.
