we have never been back there since
Step 1: pick out a good pumpkin.
Step 2: draw the pattern on the pumpkin.
Step 3: rip out the guts of the pumpkin.
Step 4: very carefully carve the pumpkin.
Step 5: hold the pumpkin up as if it was your head.
Step 6: light the pumpkin and see how it looks.
The gentlemen depicted is Alan Turing, who is considered the father of modern computer science... maybe you've heard of the Turing test for artificial intelligence? He was British and worked for the British secret service as a mathematician and cryptographer until he was convicted of being a homosexual (which he was and which was considered a mental illness under the law). To avoid being sent to prison, he had to agree to undergo estrogen hormone therapy, and he did for a year, but the homosexuality conviction caused him to lose his security clearance and therefore to lose his job. He killed himself a year later by eating an apple poisoned with cyanide, which seems a little ornate, I think.
It's quite a sad story, but he makes a delightful pumpkin. The last time I carved one was four years ago and it had a pineapple on it. It was pretty nice, but I think Turing beats it, even though he looked better in the drawing phase than at the end of the process.
