Pumpkin Carving FAQs
The tradition of carving pumpkins to make jack-o-lanterns is believed to have originated in Ireland. In the 1800’s, gourds of many kinds were hollowed and carved with grotesque faces. Jack O’ Lanterns were believed to scare away evil spirits. In 1835, the legend of “Jack-o’-the-Latern” was published in Dublin on Halloween.
Carved pumpkins don’t last long, so it is best to wait as close to Halloween as possible. Three days before Halloween is a good timeframe to aim for.
Since pumpkins are organic, you can safely add to your compost bin.
