It’s nearly time for Halloween, which means the flickering lights of jack ‘o lanterns on doorsteps. Here’s what wikipedia says about jack ‘o lanterns:
In a jack-o’-lantern, typically the top is cut off, and the inside flesh then scooped out; an image, usually a monstrous face, is carved onto the outside surface, and the lid replaced. At night a light is placed inside to illuminate the effect. The term is not particularly common outside North America, although the practice of carving lanterns for Halloween is.
Of course, a “monstrous face” isn’t always the only thing on the menu, and why go for the usual when you can show your personality? In my experience, one of the best ways to spot a geek home is what we choose to carve into our pumpkins. And hey, there’s still a few days left until Halloween. Plenty of time to get some inspiration…
