J is for Jack-O-Lanterns

Carving pumpkins :)
This is one of my favorite parts of Halloween. Besides dressing up like a ho and eating more candy than is healthy.

As an adult there are few opportunities to squish in mud and romp in the rain. This is a tradition that really caters to adults because knives are involved.

After slicing up the punkin you get to be elbow deep in guts.
Roasting pumpkin seeds and exhibiting your artistic talents with a knife (if you have any).

Carving pumpkins is also a good group activity.
It’s just good old fashion messy fun.

I still have no clue how people used to carve turnips. Crazy, crazy skills.
