Some day I’ll carve a really intricate design into a pumpkin.
For now, I’ll leave that to the experts.
As far back as I can remember, I’ve never been that into pumpkin carving. I mean, I’ve done it, but mostly because it’s what you’re supposed to do at Halloween. Some people get super into it and make pies and roast the seeds, the whole nine yards. Not me. I mostly just complain about how nasty the innards are that you have to remove.
Ok, have a ruined it yet?
The truth is, though, I do have a favorite part. The fire part. I love seeing what the final product looks like all lit up in the dark. I stick that candle in there, light it, then stand back and ooh and ahh at that hacked-up fruit. If you wanted to get real philosophical here, a person could say something about how light brings beauty to darkness…but, I’m not going to do that.
Without further ado, I present to you my somewhat instructional video on how to carve a pumpkin with one hand:
