Of the holiday season, in my view anyhow, Halloween is the least miserable. Not only because it is a day with a rich history, but because it can inspire the imagination.

I’m not keen on the store-bought latex costumes, but I always get lark out of the ingenutiy and creativity of some people.

And Extreme Pumpkins is the epitome of that creativity.

The ExtremePumpkins site is brought to you by Tom Nardone, a internet entrepreneur and—and obvious loon. He’s managed to meld the worlds of Jack-o-lanterns and pyrotechnics for your viewing pleasure.

The galleries are where the goods are; I envy the minds that were the genesis of some of these gems.
