I love carving pumpkins… though I must admit, I’m not very good at it.
 I’ve tried the templates and sometimes they came out okay. I suppose I’m a bit of a traditionalist – just draw a picture with a magic marker and go for it. 
 
 
Nowadays, pumpkin-carving has grown into a genuine art form. Some are mind blowing, though occasionally I question their techniques. I realized the popular thing to do now-a-days is buy those fake pumpkins then carve them – (which seems a bit like cheating). I mean, come on… the best part of carving a pumpkin is gutting it!

 

 There’s a whole process to it. From cutting the top on the proper angle (to stop it from falling into the pumpkin) to scraping out the guts with a big spoon. And if you were lucky, maybe mom would cook up the pumpkin seeds with some salt! 
 
Anywho, here are a few of my favorite pumpkin carvings I found on the interwebs. I did my best to find and display only authentic pumpkins.
