The recipe is quite simple.

Take one pumpkin and, using a sharp knife, slice off the top. Scoop out seeds and gunge from inside. Poke holes in the front in a rough sort of face design. The lanterns originally symbolised the faces of souls in Purgatory. Today they symbolise the struggle of parents to carve something resembling human features without slicing off a finger or letting small children anywhere near the knife.
