[PKG PUMPKIN CARVER]

WOW! MY JACK-O-LANTERNS NEVER TURN OUT THAT GOOD! AMERICANS HAVE BEEN CARVING PUMPKINS AROUND HARVEST TIME SINCE IRISH IMMIGRANTS BEGAN COMING TO THE COUNTRY. THEY USED TO CUT FACES INTO TURNIPS AND POTATOES TO SCARE OFF BAD SPIRITS IN THEIR HOMELAND. BUT WHEN THEY MOVED HERE, PUMPKINS BECAME THE VEGETABLE OF CHOICE.
