I love the costumes, the ghost stories, the horror movies, the decorations and all that, but IMHO, carving a jack o'lantern is THE archatypical Halloween traddition, that Halloween is not complete without. Of course, I love it when ToT ers come to my door, and I love all the other decorations, too. But Halloween with out a jack o'lantern is just not Halloween.
