Halloween prep time is on, people. There are jumbo bags of Haribo to buy, witches hats to make and, of course, pumpkins to carve. A whole lot of pumpkins, actually - Sainsbury's will sell a whopping one million carving pumpkins and an additional 140,000 cooking pumpkins this year alone. Phew! 


But is pumpkin carving easy? Nope. Come 31st October, the stubbornly hard-to-chop-through squash is the bane of pushed parents everywhere. And, just to make you feel that little bit worse, there are folk out there who make legitimate works of art out the old orange ball.


You're right, they do have too much time on their hands. But still. Let's take a moment to bow down to their All Hallows' Eve mastery before the painstaking process of trying to dig out a face into a giant orange vegetable begins again.
