Halloween pumpkins over the years

One of our most cherished family traditions is the yearly carving of the Halloween pumpkin by my daughter and myself, which has essentially been conserved since our time in California. Over the years this activity has resulted in very different designs between scary and funny.

2016: a dinosaur monster movie
2017: Grumpy Peanuts
2018: Residents theme

in October 2019 for some reason we chose a selection of viruses as subject. Featuring several types of virus such as a bacteriophage (the large one) but also something resembling a flu or coronavirus (top right) we innocently anticipated things to come.

That’s why in 2020 we chose the most innocent and harmless subject we could imagine: a flower with friendly bees on it. One year after, in 2021, we carved a giant octopus, toying with a little boat. We are sure the mass development of squids on the French coast this year had nothing to do with it.
