Pumpkin Carving Competition at Applegate Properties

Pumpkin Carving Competition at Applegate Properties

24th Oct, 2016

Whether it’s a ghoul, a Disney princess or even an outline of your name, we want to see as many original designs as possible (they don’t all have to be scary!).

You can enter by simply emailing us your full name, contact number and a photo of you with your pumpkin. Or, send it to us via one of our social media channels. We’re on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and LinkedIn!

We’re keeping the prize as a secret, but you won’t want to miss out…

Last entries will be taken on 29th October and the winner will be revealed on Tuesday 1st November.

In the spirit of Halloween, here are a few fun facts that you should know about the holiday itself:

  • The first Jack-o-lanterns were made from turnips, not pumpkins
  • ‘Samhainophobia’ is the word for the fear of Halloween
  • Halloween has a number of names; All Hallows’ Eve, Witches Night, Lamswool, Snap-Apple Night, Samhaim, and Summer’s End
  • Halloween is thought to have originated near to 4000 B.C., which means it has been around for over 6,000 years
  • Ireland is typically believed to be the birthplace of Halloween.

Also, if you want to celebrate Halloween in and around Holmfirth then there are a few events going on locally. Take a look here: http://www.holmfirthevents.co.uk/calendar/category/halloween/.

Get carving, and good luck!
