Remember when you were a kid and Halloween was all about dressing up as your favorite super hero and running around the neighborhood trying to score as much free candy as possible? Then at some point as you got older it was all about guys dressing up as the latest pop-culture person to be considered funny, women pick a profession and go as the slutty version, and everyone drinks so much pumpkin ale they puke orange all over the streets of Adams Morgan? Well without debating the merits of naughty schoolteachers there is one thing that’s also changed as you’ve grown older, what people want to carve into pumpkins. So enjoy the holiday spirit and check out what some people consider the finest in gourd art.
