Countdown to Halloween 2008 & Jack-O-Lantern-a-Day

Friday, October 17th, 2008


The year’s most ghoulish holiday is almost upon us! So join us for some spooky, kooky, creepy fun as we countdown to Halloween.

Each day we’ll be featuring a different Jack-O-Lantern to get you in the holiday mood.



Its amazing how pumpkin carving has  evolved over the years. From the most basic of jack-o-lanterns carvings to fantastic works of arts. Many quite impressive!

So lets begin our holiday countdown featuring some of the most interesting carved pumpkins we’ve come across.  A Japanese Carp-o-lantern? Just “Boo-utiful“!


Stop by again for our countdown to Halloween. Only 14 more days to go!
