Nope. This jack-o-lantern turned into a jack-o-zombie in only four days. Eeeeeee!
I grew up in the little town of Gulf Breeze on the humid Florida Gulf Coast and I don't ever recall a carved pumpkin rotting so damn quickly. But down here in the most southern part of coastal Georgia, jack-o-lanterns apparently become jack-o-zombies in mere days rather than weeks.
And we haven't even had the torrential rains in the past month that we had all summer.
Next year I'll know to hold off on putting out the jack-o-lantern until three days before Halloween.
But in the meantime, I've got another jack-o-lantern to carve. Fingers crossed that it doesn't become a zombie until the day afternoon Halloween: November 1, The Day of the Dead. Check out the slide show below.
