Happy Halloween, everyone! All of the preparation for this day – making costumes, getting candy and decorating the house – has finally paid off, and here we are on Halloween-eve! For today’s post, I was going to feature a creepy photo of trick-or-treaters from the 1930s, but I couldn’t resist using this image of a cat scaring three pumpkin people on a watermelon.

I’m not sure if the spooky black cat chased them up on the watermelon, but if so, I wouldn’t blame them. That cat looks absolutely creepy! I think the story unraveled like this: There were three pumpkin people coming home from a Halloween party. They were crossing the watermelon patch when a black cat jumped out and scared them!

To get away from the scary black cat, the trio hopped up on the biggest watermelon in the patch, and for good reason. Historically, black cats have been known as the choice pet for witches, which is why there is superstition surrounding them. However, it is considered good luck if they walk away from you, so if you see one while you are trick-or-treating, just move slowly and cautiously. Just don’t share your candy with it!

As soon as I saw the photo above on a website, I knew that I had to carve my very own watermelon brain for a Halloween party I’ll be attending this weekend. But like everything lately, I ran out of time and I don’t think I’ll be able to put my carving skills to the test this week. So, I’ll do the next best thing and link to a website with step by step instructions for carving this cranial concoction. If anyone tries this, take a picture and send it to me using the experts link on the right, and I’ll post it here on What About Watermelon!
