Carving pumpkins in the autumn became by years sort of tradition of the young generation. Our grandmothers had already liked carving before The Day of The Dead different shapes and faces to pumpkins to avoid the forces of evil spirits. Young people practice this rather because of influence of American culture, which engraved her way to the european countries over the last decade so deeply. Also known is a feast of Halloween which, however, in eastern regions have not received such a recognition as in western countries.
Often is mentioned a familiar rule that The bigger The better. The same is true with pumpkins. On bigger cucurbita you can fit more than on small decorative gourds grown in your own field. These are, of course, very pretty, too, but you will experience a decent experience of carving only when you will have the opportunity to try it out on a proper pumpkin.
