People Who Smash Jack-o-Lanterns are the Lowest of the Low

OK maybe not as low as pedophiles or anything, but people who smash jack-o-lanterns are some of the lowest forms of life. I don't care if they are just kids "having fun". Haven't their parents taught them any manners??!

So to the person who smashed the jack-o-lantern sitting on our porch -- the first jack-o-lantern that Little Guy had ever carved from the first pumpkin that he had ever picked out from the pumpkin patch himself, just know that you haven't spoiled the joy of Halloween for us. Even if he does come home every day and ask me "Mommy, where is the jack-o-lantern. It smashed?" and it makes me want to rip my heart out.

Even still, you haven't spoiled the holiday. Not by a long shot. Not for this cowboy.

He is adorable! You know, my friends used to smash pumpkins in high school. Of course, I was never a part of such tomfoolery, ahem. They had a rule, however, no pumpkins that were little or that were carved so as to not upset any little ones. Sounds like the hooligans in your neighborhood do not know the pumpkin smashing rules! Glad your little guy had a good time despite this -- giddyup!

He is a cutie pie though.

I thought that was part of Halloween. Just kidding.

It is really sad to see a smashed pumpkin.

That sucks. Really sucks. Poor little guy. I never understood the joy in destroying something like that, be it smashing pumpkins or egging cars or smashing windows.

When I was about 6 or 7 I carved a pumpkin with my dad (a rare thing for him to do - he wasn't real hands on) and we made a scarecrow, using the pumpkin for the head. I retrieved my much-loved cowboy hat from the toybox and put it on the pumpkin head. Of course, some assholes in the neighbourhood decided not only to smash the pumpkin but to rip the scarecrow limb from limb and tear my cowboy hat to shreds.

I still get pissed about it, 30-some years later.

Awe! That's just wrong!

DH has insisted we keep our jack-o-lanterns inside (in a window) for the past 2 yrs because of the same thing.

Pumpkin smashers are on my s**t list right up there with mailbox smashers. What is the point? It makes me sad to see poor pumpkins smashed all over the road.
Your little dude is adorable!!
