For those of us who carve out real jack o'lanterns, how many will you do this year? In the past we've done between 5-8 for our yard display and porch. Our theme this year doesn't lend itself to having them as part of the display so we're carving three for our back patio where we'll have a small afterglow party on the 31st with some close friends and neighbors. I'll move them to the front porch after the party as it wouldn't be Halloween w/o jacks on the front porch. How many will you carve out?

I have five right now but I may pick up a couple more by then. I'm going to put them all around my pumpkin head reaper as if they are his minions or something like that.

I normally do about 5 or 6, all on Halloween day. Kicker is, they're usually the giant ones with super thick walls, so it takes forever. I've got 4 right now, more (big one!) being delivered (delivered! I said it's big) tomorrow. And probably more medium ones sometime later on. I'm kind of making a pumpkins area this year, plus the usual flaming pumpkin torch.

I carved a half dozen or so in 2011 but I haven't really carved like I used too and didn't do any the last couple of years. I love carving pumpkins. I carved over 20 pumpkins a few years ago for myself and for some friends; I did over 20 pumpkins that year using over 30 stencils in three days and my shoulders were aching. Would have been nice,and easier, to have help cleaning the darns things. I have carpal tunnel and tendonitis so it is difficult to carve them now. I do have a dremel now so I may actually try a couple of small ones this year if I have time. I was eye balling some in the store today and I haven't bothered to check them out for a couple years so the urge to do it again is back.

Here are some of the pumpkins I carved that year.
