Geisinger doc: Careful with the knife when carving pumpkins


Also helpful is to cut in a well-lit area and making sure carving tools are not slippery from the pumpkin’s fruit.

In addition, people who have pets may want to consider using an electric light or a glow stick instead of a candle, to avoid the chance of animals knocking the lit flame on the floor. Light sources can also be safer to add if the bottom of the pumpkin is removed and the pumpkin place on top, instead of cutting a hole at the top, Goldberg said.
