People Are Carving Pineapples Instead Of Pumpkins And They’re Terrifying

People are carving pineapples this year instead of pumpkins. Yes, a pineapple jack o’ lantern carving is now becoming the Halloween trend for a tropical theme.

As odd as it sounds, the results are actually even more terrifying than pumpkins. Here are 18 examples of what people have come up with so far.

1. People actually started carving pineapples a while ago where it’s easier to get pineapples than pumpkins such as Hawaii and other beach towns.

2. It’s definitely a unique way to stand out from all the pumpkins out there.

5. Just like a pumpkin, the inside must be scooped out of the pineapple before it can be carved into whatever design the person wants.

8. Pineapples will be more difficult to carve than a pumpkin because of their harder (and pricklier) exterior.
