Turnips to Pumpkins

The original Jack o lantern used to frighten away evil spirits was made out of turnip. Early settlers from Europe found that pumpkins were a lot easier to carve so adapted the tradition to carve pumpkins instead of turnips.

God blesses those that are humble.
Mathew 5 v 5

Collect some pumpkins with your family today and enjoy drawing faces on them or carving them so that they are ready for Halloween in a few days.

Remember to keep them outside in the cool as they will last longer.
