My First Flaming Pumpkin

You never forget your first time…

Those little tea lights or small bulbs you’re supposed to put in pumpkins never really seem to show off their scary features. You get this little light that the wind is probably going to blow out after a couple of minutes or no one from the street can see the impressive carving you came up with.

I believe I have achieved the pinnacle in pumpkin illumination. Here we have Mr. Jack-O-Lantern with his scary face being sufficiently lit up with the help of a little accelerant. He certainly lights up the night sky now! The kids will be able to see him from all the way down the street. No more wondering which house is up to the challenge of having tricks or treats for the little kids. With this little display on the lawn or sidewalk you are saying to the neighborhood, “That’s right kids, there’s candy over here, by all means come and get some.”

Then again it’s just as likely to say, “Attention everyone! I’ve completely lost my mind and the chances of you being incinerated are pretty damn high!”

This was my beta test to see how my new Halloween plan was going to work. I have to say, it was pretty successful. Maybe for the next go-round I will roast a hot dog over his flaming skull.
