Kids love the Mario pumpkin

Who knew so many kids still loved Mario? I’ve carved a Snoopy pumpkin and Buzz (Georgia Tech’s mascot) with minimal response in recent years. But this year the kids were yelling about Mario the pumpkin, as they approached our house to trick-or-treat. I’m not all that creative, I used a template to carve it, but I enjoy a good end result. Thought I’d share, and share my amazement – Mario might still be one of the most recognizable characters to kid. I figured I was just tapping the nostalgia of playing Nintendo 20 years ago, but Mario is still going strong. What other videogame character is so recognizable?
