One of Halloween’s most famous symbols is the jack-o-lantern. Usually depicted as a carved out pumpkin with eyes that are lighting up, most parents will be prodded by their children to do a similar project come Halloween season.
While candles is one of the ways to illuminate the jack-o-lantern, it may not be the safest way. Instructables.com tells us why, as it published a comprehensive tutorial on how to install a light inside a carved out pumpkin. Builders and Contractors
“A few years ago one of our neighbors had a few jack-o’-lanterns in spirit of halloween. Like everyone he used candles to light them up and give them that original halloween glow! One pumpkin actually caused a few dry leaves to catch fire. Thankfully it wasn’t anything major and no one was hurt and because of that it led me to go searching in some alternative methods. I found an easy way to give jack-o’-lanterns a great glow without the risk of a fire. Now it is rare that one will cause a fire but it does run a small risk. Also using this small and easy method you can keep your pumpkin lit up all night and never have to worry! Peace of mind is always a good thing.”

The website Holiday Party Guide came up with six ways to light up a pumpkin without a candle. Electricians
“A pumpkin light stand is super practical! A bright light bulb is built right into the base, plus you get all of the benefits of having a protective stand to place your carved pumpkin on. There’s a 6-foot cord that makes it easy to turn on and off the light, or you could plug it into a light timer and never have to worry about turning on/off your lighted pumpkin every night.”

“With minimal household materials, get maximum gross-out effect: This pumpkin project is basically a grade-school volcano experiment, but with a spooky twist. Adding food coloring, water, dish soap, and baking soda to a grimacing Jack before pouring in the vinegar turns an otherwise boring pumpkin into an oozefest.”
