Took me ages. Have you carved one yet?
It looks like something you might find in a voodoo ceremony.
I hope you didn't throw the innards away. You can make great soup or pumpkin pie with it.
Apparently there is a shortage of pumpkins though you wouldn't know it from some of the fields near us.
When I was a kid we used to use neeps.
I know where they all are - Terry Tesco has 'em all.
A turnip? That's impressive although pumpkins seem easier.
Got this from Google images.
There are some amazing examples.
Sainsburys had a load too. I'm carving mine on Friday with the munchkins
I have a vague memory on my now deceased Scottish grandfather carving out a turnip for our Halloween celebration around 1983. Took him an age but he was determined.
Can see why Pumpkins replaced turnips.
We had swedes when we were children. They were tough as old boots and stank when the bit of candle, we had inside, burnt the innards. It took hours to hollow them out. We hung them on a bit of string to carry them by and went on a haunting spree round the flats at the end of the road. None of this trick or treat nonsense though.
For a second there, I thought you'd done this.
Staying in this Halloween so I haven't got one. I am going to pretend I am not in. I don't want eggs and miscellaneous stuff lobed at my house! This is probably what I would look like after the aftermath-.
I feel your pain. I lived in a house where this sort of thing happened . I moved . I have had very few if any visitors since I moved into a small rural village. I dont think Trick or Treat (demanding goods with menaces) is done here. I am aware of a Halloween Party for the children down in the village hall though. Crabettes do not seem to want to go.
Just because we are teachers... the children and other students have to 'fight back'.
The pumpkins sold for carving are usually pretty tasteless. The smaller ones are better for eating.
We carved turnip lanterns in Year 6 - with sharp kitchen knives brought from home. 1965!
I like these that I found outside a cafe in Gdansk a few years ago although I didn't make them.
Another load of American nonsense, if you ask me! More for commercialism than anything else. How we love Black Friday, eh? The UK will soon be celebrating Thanksgiving and the 4th of July, without really knowing why.
They look brilliant.
A little late in my upload but this was my effort this year!
Oh that's good, I like it
I'd show you mine but then that would give me away!
