Hey friends, It was a true story of long ago ,when I was a kid.There was a big fresh pumpkin in my backyard and It was really a huge pumpkin and was very handsome too.so I decided to have that pumpkin and although it would have to much work to clean and carve it for Halloween .
When I reached my room with that heavy pumpkin at that time no one was present at my home , My dog Tuffy was sitting on my bed.
Let me introduce Tuffy ,he was a black,adorable Lebra who was just 6 months old at that time.he was my closest companion during my childhood.
Last year ,no one came to my house , though I bought bags of candies and I was very sad to see that all candies go waste.so I decided not to carve any pumpkin this year and also not going to celebrate Halloween as I was given up.but that heavy,cute pumpkin managed to change my mind.
There was a positive feeling in my mind that due to this guy my this year Halloween would be best ever.As it is the secret of universe that positive though reflect the good things in life.so something like that was going to happen for me and my dog Tuffy was also very happy , showing is happiness by moving his small furry tail very slowly.
So we started to carve old jack with care , we are very careful because we don’t have another pumpkin as spare. There were two choices, cut off the top or the bottom, we started cutting the top. The secret is cut a hole just big enough to scoop out the pulp and seeds. We tried to make a neat,confident cut ,then we just replaced the top when the Jack-o-Lantern is finished. We tenderly make a cut at an angle so that the lid won't fall into the pumpkin.
A silver spoon is best for extracting the unwanted pumpkin seeds and the flesh, actually we use a big desert spoon to begin with, and then a teaspoon to finish the job. However, there are lots of craft knives available for making the incisions. We like to make small cuts and punch holes, big cut tends to tear the skin.
As am an expert carver, so I always make a relatively small hole, then just pare away the red skin to expose the flesh, thus making a two-tone effect. My suggestion is always to pay some special attention in making a hole for your candle.
I always prefer medium thick candles. Most important is that you should be able to replace the lid as the slits for the eyes and teeth will provide ventilation for fresh air with new oxygen.
So it was really a memorable view when I set him outside of my entrance door and lit his candle.with in a couple of minutes as soon as I lit the candles, all kids in my neighborhood reached my home.I was more than happy and shelled out candies the candies to everyone.
No doubt that heavy,handsome pumpkin saved my Halloween that year and really I have been the role model of my area since then. I kept the seeds of that pumpkin and planted them in my garden, Every year now all my Jack-O- Lanterns are part of old jack and I’ve never forgotten my childhood since.
