Creative Pumpkin Contest!!!

Ah October!! What a wonderful month!! The leafs begin to change, the weather begins to cool down, everyone starts to shop for Halloween costumes, children day dream about all the candy they’re going to eat, and appearing all around town and all over porches are PUMPKINS!!! But why Pumpkins?! Well, lets go back to the beginning… The Druids, a Celtic religious order in ancient Britain, Ireland and France, believed that the souls of the dead returned to mingle with the living on ‘hallowed eve,’ October 31. People originally dressed in costumes to disguise themselves from these spirits. And to protect themselves just in case the spirits recognized them, the children would carve turnips and place candles inside to scare away the spirits! The Druids brought this tradition over to America during the great potato famine. Since pumpkins did not grow in Europe during that time, the Druids tossed their turnips over their shoulders the minute they saw our large pumpkins and got to carving. Bringing us the wonderful tradition of PUMPKIN CARVING!!!!! 

So we thought it would be a fun activity to bring to Filter Pure!!

Everyone was given one pumpkin to get creative with. The only rule…you can not damage the pumpkin in any way. You can not carve it, stab it, poke any holes, etc. We made this a rule so that after a week we wouldn’t be plugging our noses trying to escape the smell of rotting pumpkin.   Ready to see everyone’s Pumpkins!?!? 1. Jessica’s OWL! 2. Desmond’s ANGRY BIRD! 3. April’s HONEY BOO BOO CHILD! 4. Denise’s Ghost!! 5. Vince’s PIRATE!! 6. Angela’s Deadly Poisonous Spider!!! 7. Craig’s Crazy Creature!!!   8. Lara’s Largest Pumpkin Farm!     9. Rusty and Karen’s Pumpkin Outlaw  Now, we here at Filter Pure love a good competition! So we decided to have our walk in customers and each other vote who they think is the most creative pumpkin!! We set up this little voting station and tons of people have already voted!  On October 31st, we will count up the votes and declare the winner!! Of course, the winner will get a gift card to…well it’s a surprise, but you know they will get a lot of CANDY!!! So come back soon to see who will be the MOST CREATIVE PUMPKIN!!!
