    Specifically, jack-o-lanterns.
    It occuurred to me, that we replicate human heads by carving in the equivalent of a face, then cutting open the equivalent of a scalp, pulling out the equivalent of brains with a spoon, and putting in a candle.

    Taking out the equivalent of brains, to attempt to replicate a human head. Strangely enough though, halloween (and jack-o-lanterns) is generally more often done in america. The US.
    'nuff said.

    I see what you're getting at, but this it's rather silly to speculate that paranoid Americans should have to worry about jack-o-lanterns. After all, you carve it to make a scary face, not to simulate murder of a person.

    Not to sound like a cynic or anything, but American holidays have long since stopped making sense.

    Yea, but what really bugs me is when there's a (for example) thanksgiving event on a global game/server. I mean comeon, how come we have random thanksgiving events but you don't have random ANZAC day (for example) events?

    I guess that the country the server is hosted in can have holidays from said country. I'm pretty sure an England server would have a Boxing Day event (forgive me if I confused a country here, foreign holidays aren't my strong suit).

    I don't see how this is any worse than violent video games.

    I think you're missing my point: you "make a person" by removing their brain.
    Brains are for thinking. Removing pumpkin "brains" is most practiced in america.

    They're not brains. Pumpkins are fruit.

    In the future we'll have a holiday simulating rocket jumping by lighting a campfire under a trampoline.

    Except that the reason that you yank the guts out of a pumpkin is to retard spoilage and allow space for a candle, not in order to improve the mimicry.
