549. Standing up for ancient traditions

31 October 2005

Read about the Scottish and Irish Hallowe'en tradition, and how it is being usurped by the invading pumpkin!

Very cool Stu!, nice job...
WOW, I do remember the one you took last year, it was really scary... hehe

What a fine toothy grin. The turnips here are a bit small and pasty-faced for this.

Yes, where do you find turnips large enough. Makes an interesting abstract jack o lantern though.

I love it. Yes, I shall read about it. I am just wondering the size of the turnip used.
