We Love Friday!- Fall Is In the Air

Albert Camus once said, “Autumn is a second spring when every leaf is a flower.” There is something so magical about watching the leaves change and fall to the ground as nature transitions from Summer to Winter; it’s just as gorgeous as new life blossoming in the Spring. It’s that time of year when you can get everything pumpkin flavored again and work your butt of trying to fit into that skimpy Halloween costume before the holiday weight gain creeps in. Last Saturday on SNL, host Christina Applegate described this time period perfectly in a song about the not quite holiday season.

Halloween: Worlds Largest Pumpkin Carving

What better way to pay tribute to the worlds largest pumpkin, than by turning it into the worlds largest pumpkin carving for Halloween. Grown by Jim Bryson and his daughter Kelsey, the behemoth squash weighs in at an astounding 1818.5 pounds, the heaviest ever weighed.

To carve up the slightly lopsided pumpkin, renowned sand, toy and pumpkin carver Ray Villafane lent his skilled hands and brilliant Halloween themed design featuring zombies climbing out of the cracking giant. Villafane used another smaller pumpkin, weighing 1693 pounds (!) for additional pieces including the zombies, easily making this the largest pumpkin carving in history
