What should your Halloween Pumpkin look like?

October has flown by, and Halloween is just around the corner, which means that it’s time to carve jack o’lanterns and beautify the humble pumpkin. Whether you’ve never carved a pumpkin in your life and think trick-or-treating is for primary schoolers, or you’re a professional at mass-collecting candy and decorate your house each year, this quiz will tell you the best use of October’s scariest squash.


  1. How do you feel about halloween?
    1. It’s a useless, boring holiday that I grew out of a long time ago.
    3. I think the costumes are adorable, and it’s super fun for kids and kids at heart.
    4. Eh. Neutral. I like fall in general, so I sort of like Halloween by default.
  2. What’s your aesthetic?
    1. Simple, clever, functional
    2. Beautiful, detailed, intricate
    3. Anything cute!
    4. Rustic and weathered
  3. Favorite Halloween candy?
    1. Any chocolate bar
    2. Skittles or Sourpatch
    3. Almond joy or peanut butter cups
    4. Twizzlers or Kit Kats
  4. Best time to go trick-or-treating?
    1. Never.
    2. Start at 5:00, stop when people start yelling at you for waking them up.
    3. Maybe around 6:00-7:00, if you’re going with siblings or other kids.
    4. I’d rather answer the door and give candy.
  5. What would you dress up as when going to a Halloween party?
    1. Take a sharpie to a white shirt and write: ERROR – costume not found
    2. Anything with awesome makeup and an intricate costume!
    3. Probably in a cute onesie or cat ears.
    4. A ghost or something?

You’re not really a Halloween person and don’t want to put much effort into carving a pumpkin. But, you wouldn’t pass up a party, so this pumpkin cooler is for you. Basically, trim off the top of the pumpkin with a large knife, take out the insides, and fill it with ice and soda. Useful, cool looking, and easy – but still in the Halloween spirit.
