Thatsa Big Pumpkin

Pumpkin carver Chris Vierra works on carving a giant pumpkin after the placement of a tooth for the "Carnivorous Creature" head earlier today in New York. Vierra and other carvers put their talents on display during a promotional event, carving a 1,496 pounds pumpkin from Edinburg, Pa., to raise public awareness of the New York Botanical Garden's "Giant Pumpkin Carving Weekend" next Oct. 19 and 20. The event features a team of carvers transforming a pumpkin ever weighing over 2,000 pounds and grown by Tim and Susan Mathison from Napa, Calif. (AP Photo/Bebeto Matthews)

Question: Do you enjoy carving pumpkins into jack-o-lanterns?
