Even though most of us aren't nearly as good at carving pumpkins as Jon Neill or Ray Villafane, people around the world still love to carve pumpkins as a fun way to celebrate Halloween. In this list, you'll be able to get inspiration for your own pumpkin or share your cool creative idea with other Bored Panda readers!

Many sources point to England and/or Ireland as the origin of the gourd lantern tradition. The grotesque faces carved into gourds and pumpkins were meant to scare away the spirits present on the Gaelic Samhain festival or on All Souls' night.
