We don't do Halloween here. It is just too much of a paganization of a beautiful Catholic feast. We do celebrate All Saints Day and All Souls Day. However there is nothing wrong with carving a few pumpkins and putting them out to decorate the landscape. Yesterday Ian and Melissa helped Layn carve his first Jack O'Lantern. He was not only truly into it but he enjoyed eating the roasted seeds after and seeing it lit up.
He wanted to clean that thing out all by himself, thank you very much!
I am glad that Ian didn't let him wield the knife though.
