There are many symbols and customs associated with the festival of Halloween, but nothing stands out as much as the pumpkin. Pumpkins come in many shapes, sizes and colors. People carve smiling faces from them, paint them, and decorate them – in fact, they look great even uncarved! For carving out interesting shapes from pumpkins you can make use of the new battery –operated pumpkin carver knives that are available in the market nowadays!
Children then go around dressed up in their Halloween costumes, knocking on doors, calling out “Trick or Treat!” The custom of Trick or Treat was believed to have been started with boy scouts.
Here is an interesting recipe to try out this Halloween. It is a great way to use pumpkin up after scooping out the seeds to bake. A delicious dish to serve to guests!
