Do you know where the concept of carving pumpkins came from? Well I suppose there are many variations, like the one you can find on the Wikipedia page. But one of my favourite stories is based on Celtic Mythology, click here and scroll down to the story of the jack-o-lantern. No matter which story you prefer it seems it all started with turnips. Can you imagine carving a turnip! And I thought my pumpkins were a lot of work!!
I hope you're having a wonderful Hallowe'en and find a way to stay dry while out and about this evening!
