Who: Anyone & Everyone
What: Pumpkin Picking
Where: The pumpkin and squash patch outside of Town Proper on the edge of the terrifying Scarecrow Fields
Warnings: Nothing yet!
The Pumpkin Ceremony was deeply-revered by most residents of Halloween Town. The act of selecting a pumpkin to spend the rest of the month with wasn't something thought of as hokey; instead, it was viewed with a respect uncommon in people who generally preferred beheadings to sermons. However, when outsiders asked just what the heck they were supposed to be doing, locals superstitiously shut right up. Apparently the pumpkin choosing ceremony was something you felt, not explained.
Jack Skellington was just another citizen today; the Mayor was pulling pumpkins and squashes from the patch outside of Town Proper and letting Halloween Town citizens point to the one that they wanted to take home. Other citizens preferred to have the Mayor select them their own pumpkin, enjoying their show at luck.
