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.
OMG.....Why haven't people though about this before?? I get the pumpkin/Jack-o-lantern thing but carved pineapple d… https://t.co/3grWauavu0— Firastitute (@Firastitute)1539743920.0
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.

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!
