Carving pumpkins comes from a Celtic tradition to ward off evil spirits. The Irish did not carve pumpkins, they carved turnips and rutabagas but when the Irish came to America they found that pumpkins were better vehicles for carving so they change vegetables. At 316 Elm Street carving pumpkins is a Halloween tradition. This pumpkin died on October 5, 2014, 4 days after this picture was taken.
