Jack o lantern pumpkins are perhaps the most iconic symbol of Halloween. We see them displayed everywhere during the celebration plus most trick or treat baskets are designed that way as well.

However, there comes a time when you can get tired of carving that same scary face on a pumpkin every year. So you try to play around with different concepts just to shake things up and make things interesting.
