Isn’t it amazing how nostalgic we get as we grow older? My parents were big on Halloween, down to the Fodder shocks, window decorations we would apply with Scotch Tape, and the grand icon of the holiday, the glorious Jack-o-lantern! If you’re a fan of the original Halloween, you know the film’s opening title sequence, and that alone was enough to cement my love for jack-o-lanterns. The festive Samhain gourds have only gained in popularity over the last 30 years, spawning a whole new generation of motivated carvers. Enjoy the jack-o-lanterns, just don’t blow them out before midnight, otherwise, you might meet a grubby little guy named Sam.
