    I was looking for inspirations for what to do for a pumpkin carving this Halloween 2018 and I stumbled upon this site. I must say, FANTASTIC work has been done on these pumpkins to turn them into the excellent creations I see here. To the carvers I say dea-phost agus an dea-obair a choinneáil suas. Which means “good job and keep up the good work” in Irish Gaelic. And to you who has put in the time and effort to bring this website to life I say to keep up the grand job you’re doing. Happy Halloween!
