I'm about to carve my pumpkin and am looking around the net to find some inspiration.

I'm curious to see how prevalent this tradition is amongst our users. Do you carve a pumpkin for halloween? Do you think pumpkins are best fed to animals? For making pie?

If you do create your own pumpkin folk art, please share an image with us. A picture of mine will follw when I get it done.

Well, we used to carve pumpkins, but I hated the waste of the pumpkin and the mess to clean up afterward. So, what I do now:

I get a small pumpkin and draw a face on it - sometimes two faces, one on each side.

Some time later, the pumpkin is used for food, which isn't always pie; it may be soup for instance, and the seeds roasted for snacking.

If I can find some of my older pumpkin pictures, which I don't guarantee, I'll see if I can scan one or two at Kinko's so I can post a pic. I don't have a digital camera so posting a picture of this year's pumpkin won't be possible for quite some time.
