Pumpkin carving.

All Hallows' Eve is almost upon us, my friends. Halloween is a special time of year for many people, myself included. I consider it the gateway to Autumn. The odd, unique and macabre can be openly celebrated, as they justly should be. Our section of the globe becomes more frigid and Mother Nature begins to pull back for the long winter. A foreboding sense of dread and darkness begins to creep in, making the end of the calendar year all the more solemn and revered. This is MY time of year, just as it may be for you as well.

Crystal and I carved our pumpkins this evening. They're absolutely magnificent, don't you think?

The first pumpkin is the one Crystal carved. It has a really cool scar on its cheek. She said it was a "bad-ass" and just broke out of prison. I tend to agree.

My jack-o-lantern this year has a face of total fright. It's shrieking in complete horror and looks totally absorbed by some unholy terror. I debated putting a giant butcher knife in it for added dramatic effect, but thought it might be overkill.

Hahaha... I said overkill.

What does Halloween represent to you? Any fond memories from your childhood? Perhaps a special costume? Please share!

Keep it spooky boils and ghouls!
