Someone thought it was time for Halloween conventions to get a makeover.

Jack-o'-lanterns are getting a re-skin by replacing pumpkins with pineapples.

Are you ready for it?


On one hand, the tropical fruit is a worthy successor to the squash plant.

When carved out, pineapples can look extra spooky because of its spiky surface and leafy tufts that aren't so friendly to the touch.


The process of carving out a pineapple is simple and has its advantages as well, as pointed out by Unilad.

Once you hack off the top of the pineapple head, the contents inside can be scooped out with a corer and enjoyed later.

Unfortunately, a pumpkin's slimy innards offer less substance, save for the seeds, and usually wind up in the trash.

So is it a "yay" or "nay" for the pineapple jack-o'-lantern?

We say 'Boo!' - in a good way.

People have ramped up their Halloween game this year by hopping aboard the pineapple express.

Don't get left behind! Check out some of these spooktacular creations.



So sinister.


Instead of one pineapple jack-o'-lantern, a small family of them is next-level creepy.


You can accessorize your pineapple jack-o'-lantern in various ways. This one sprouts a pair of bat wings.


Here's a clever homage to the traditional jack-o'-lantern: a pineapple dressed as a pumpkin!


We have to agree on this one.




Both forms of the jack-o'-lantern – pineapple, or pumpkin – can co-exist.


Lighting is everything.


Martha Stewart noted one drawback about carving pineapples.

You can't draw your design on the surface with a marker because of the stickiness, so you'll have to carve out a face, freehand.

But don't let that discourage you.

Now it's your turn!

Spruce up your Halloween this year with a pineapple jack-o'-lantern. Watch a tutorial on how to carve one yourself in the YouTube clip below.

Don't disturb my beauty sleep! That's the one rule I have––and thankfully I live alone, so there isn't anyone to bother me, which is fabulous. But that doesn't mean I'm immune to getting woken up in the middle of the night. The worst way I can think of off the top of my head? The time a drunk guy wandered into my friend's yard and started banging on the window while I was trying to sleep. It was 3 a.m. The incident also gave me the fright of my life!

People told us about the experiences that yanked them out of dreamland after Redditor GratefulD_86 asked the online community,

"What is the worst way you've been woken up?"

I love food! Maybe a little too much. It's been an especially amorous relationship over this pandemic. And I know I'm not alone.

All of our palettes are tuned to our own personal tastes. And sometimes certain items and combinations of tastes can leave others less than enticed.

I've lost track of all the side-eye I've gotten when I declare how much I enjoy PINEAPPLE on pizza. I said it. I meant it. Fight me. Let's discuss who else has eclectic tastes.

Redditor u/CatVideoFest wanted to discuss the mixing of certain ingredients that don't leave the best taste in one's mouth by asking:
