Carved Pumpkins for Halloween 2011

Carved Pumpkins for Halloween 2011

Carved pumpkins - it's the best part of Halloween celebrations. In this time of year everyone loves to cut out a pumpkin, it's really fun because it gets scary or different pretty faces. Carved pumpkins in the U.S. were first associated with the end of the harvest, before they became an emblem of Halloween. Chose this vegetable because jack-o'-lantern is similar to the strange lights flickering in peat bogs.
