Every year since I was young, I have carved a Jack-O-Lantern for Halloween.  While I don't possess the creative and artistic talents of some, my carvings have ranged from very simple, to a bit more involved.  This year was quite simple and rustic.

"Oh!—fruit loved of boyhood!—the old days recalling,
When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling!
When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin,
Glaring out through the dark with a candle within!
- John Greenleaf Whittier

*** Do you carve a Jack-O-Lanterns each year for Halloween?


  1. I used a power drill to carve mine this year. I totally recommend that technique!!!
