I grew up in a tiny town in a tiny state in New England, and every Halloween, a tiny church in my tiny town would hold a pumpkin-carving contest.
Pretty much all of the kids in town participated. It was the Halloween tradition everyone looked forward to (even more so than the trick-or-treating, which came in a close second).
For the most part, our pumpkins were pretty pitiful — that sh*t is tiring — but there was always that one kid who went all out and made a jack-o-lantern everyone was jealous of.
These are those pumpkins.
From spooky scenes to cartoon faces and everything in-between, these carefully-carved creations are the undisputed winners of Halloween ’15.
Get inspired; take a picture; do whatever you want — just don’t smash ‘em. Because these aren’t just jack-o-lanterns, they're art.
