Nos Galan Gaeaf / Halloween

Tomorrow is Halloween (Nos Galan Gaeaf in Welsh) and, on the spur of the moment, I decided to have a go at making a traditional Halloween lantern out of a swede. (Rutabaga in US English, I think.)

Pumpkins are for wimps. Swedes and turnips are hardcore!

I bought two swedes yesterday. I only wanted one, but there was a special offer if you bought two and I thought I might mess one up so having a spare might be useful.

I shot the video this morning and edited it this afternoon. I still have to add the voice over, but I've written the script and should be able to record it quickly in the morning and have the video up by lunchtime.

I will post a link tomorrow.
