The team comprised a ghoulish gathering to gauge their gourd-gouging abilities. (Say it, you know you want to.) OK, that’s not the only reason – we wanted to delight you all, as well.

According to Wikipedia, the Halloween tradition began in Scotland and Ireland, where turnips were carved, illuminated by candles and left at the front door to ward off spirits on the night when the veil between the living and the dead was thinnest. In the U.S., the turnip was exchanged for a pumpkin as a symbol of the harvest.


The Pumpkin

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, 1850


Everyone at wishes you a haunting and happy Halloween season. Please share your own pumpkin pictures or All Hallows’ Eve traditions with us.
