Campus Connection: Pumped about pumpkins
Late October has arrived and with it my favorite holiday, Halloween. I’m obsessed with everything that comes with the fall season – the weather, apple cider, football, leaves, and goofy costumes. One tradition that I have definitely not abandoned in the three years I’ve been in college is carving pumpkins. This year, I went to the pumpkin patch and picked out the biggest one I could find. Next it was time to figure out what I should carve into my pumpkin. After looking around online for a while, I decided what better than to carve a tribute to this great Nation of ours. My design was difficult, but I have an artistic side so I knew it would just take time and patience.. After scraping out my pumpkin, I drew on the pattern I wanted to carve. It was an American flag, the Statue of Liberty, and Mount Rushmore. A few hours later and here’s what turned out:
Although I am pleased with the outcome, I doubt that I will be spending that much time or effort on a pumpkin again any time soon.
