Apparently my local supermarket doesn't believe in either Halloween or selling pumpkins that aren't pre-cut into portions, so this year I reverted to the far older British tradition of carving turnips to create lanterns to ward off the bad ghosts.

"The turnip lantern is the festival light for Halloween and is the ancient symbol of a damned soul."

Turnips are much easier to carve and have a lovely luminosity when you hollow them out enough.
