Batman-pumpkinHalloween is coming, and for those who really get into the event, carving pumpkins is a lot of the fun. No better place to discover the intricacies and tricks of the jack-o-lantern carving trade than the Internet.

The Pumpkin Carving 101 site has lots of information, history, tips and tricks to make you a real pro in the carving biz. Whether you're doing traditional, old-fashioned carving or going the stencil route, there's lots of help there. They even have tips for photographing your carved work of art.

If you're looking for patterns and stencils, SpookMaster has a few free ones as well as a HUGE number (more than 200) of inexpensive designs, all of which you can get for a one-time fee of $5.95 - not a bad deal. When you subscribe, you get access to their subscriber site, which you can continue to use through at least January of next year. I just ordered them for a youth group even that's coming up, and I think it's a great deal. The patterns can be downloaded in PDF or JPG formats.

They've even got your NFL teams set up with stencils to carve, as well as stencils for other holidays like Thanksgiving and Christmas (which is an interesting concept and another conversation entirely). Pop culture, famous people, traditional Halloween images - it's all there.

Enjoy.
