About Carve a Pumpkin Day

Date When Celebrated: This holiday is always observed on October 31

Carve a Pumpkin Day is today, an October 31 holiday. If you don’t carve a pumpkin by today, when will you get to it?

This is your last chance to carve a pumpkin because Halloween is tonight. You’d better hurry. Pull out your carving patterns and get down to work. If you can’t find the patterns you have left over from last year, there’s no time to go to the store. They’re probably sold out, anyway. Just carve a pumpkin freehand. After it’s done, get your costume on and go trick or treating.

We believe this holiday is celebrated a little late. It is better held a few days before Halloween, or the weekend before. On the weekend, there’s time to hold a pumpkin carving party out of it. (I’m all for excuses to have a party!) You can roast pumpkin seeds, drink hot apple cider mull, and enjoy carving out pumpkins. If you decide to celebrate this special day a little earlier than the 31st, I won’t tell………

Did you Know? A pumpkin is not a Jack O’Lantern until it is carved.

Just a Thought: Wouldn’t this day be better if celebrated on October 31st? That way you can spend more time trick or treating.  As previously mentioned, we won’t tell if you celebrate this day a few days early.
