Tonight is my personal favorite night of the Halloween season: the night I carve the pumpkins! Ever since I was a little kid, I couldn’t wait for the night I got to carve pumpkins with my family. Picking out your perfect pumpkin, deciding upon your perfect design, and then drawing it on before you start carving in is just such great fun. Not to mention all the fun of pulling out the guts! Then baking pumpkin seeds, (yum!) and finally, the delightful satisfaction of seeing it perfectly candlelit under a night sky. If you’re still looking for ideas for your perfect carving, here’s a collection of some awesome jack-o’-lanterns to inspire you!
