Normally, you might have expected this at the end of October, but we never got around to it. But the Sunday after Thanksgiving, ~K~ asked (nagged) us to do it. I finally relented after the thought of roasted pumpkin seeds (yum!)
We don’t celebrate Halloween, but instead relate our Jack-O-Lantern to the Pumpkin Patch Parable that we used to read when the kids were younger (and relates it to the process of salvation).
That is why they make the same face on the pumpkin every year.
