LauraJ @TheReadingMermaid No, but they weren‘t exactly prize winning pumpkins to begin with. Some may argue that they look better now! 1mo

Day 15 #FallIsBooked - pumpkin

@Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks @OriginalCyn620

“Throughout Britain, Halloween has traditionally been celebrated by children‘s games... and the carving of faces into hollowed-out vegetables... These faces would usually be illuminated from within by a candle, the lanterns displayed on window sills to ward off any evil spirits.” https://www.historic-uk.com/CultureUK/Halloween/

Alwaysbeenaloverofbooks I just googled you lol! You have many books that I‘ll have to check out! You should have a blue check mark beside your name since you‘re an author!! 📚😊✅ 2mo
