McDonald’s Treat Pails and My Jack-O-Lantern

With Halloween fast approaching, I finally got to getting a pumpkin to carve into a Jack-o-lantern.  I’ve been checking out pumpkins every time I go out somewhere, but there wasn’t a good selection this year.  Maybe all of the good ones were bought at the beginning of the month?  But if I wanted a Jack-O-Lantern this year, I had to act quickly.

This was the best looking of the ones I’ve seen over the past few weeks.  I picked it up a few days ago, and got to carving it tonight.  And the results were pretty nice.

I got most of his slimy guts out, but there’s only so much you can get out with just your bare hands.  I usually end up giving my Jack-o-lanterns sharp teeth, so I avoided that this year.  But in order to judge whether it was a good choice, I had to see it with the lights off.

Well, it passed my test.  It looks even nicer outdoors with all of the other decorations.

I also found these.

Back in the 80’s McDonald’s debuted their McBoo pails.  The pails replaced the toys that you would normally get, and the acted as the container your Happy Meal would come in.  There were 3 diiferent one, a witch, a ghost and a pumpkin(I only need the ghost to have all 3).  I believe that they were around almost every Halloween season through the early 90’s.  Then they jsut vanished.

Last year, McDonald’s had 2 different Mr. Potato Head Halloween pails.  And now we have these two pails this year.  This has me hoping that they’ll run similar promotions every year.  They could even release the same ones for a few years in row, to save me some space.  What would be even cooler is if they were to release some updated versions of the McNugget Buddies.

I didn’t put any of the stickers on them, yet.  I plan on doing that by this weekend.  I’ll share the results, hopefully by Saturday(but there should be a post or two before then).
