Halloween has been celebrated in different ways for many years all around the world. It is interesting to see how differently this holiday is treated today in different countries.
The carved pumpkin or Jack-o’-lantern also has an interesting past. Originally, turnips were used in Ireland and Scotland, but immigrants started using the more readily available pumpkin in the colonies.
Guinness World Records has been keeping track of Halloween feats which include the largest gather of zombies or the heaviest pumpkin, weighing in at over 1,800 lbs.
