sarahelizabeth is a new face around here!
We just use tealights, LOL.

Last year we had this thing called Fright Lights where you're supposed to take these individual little light things and stick them in the pumpkin and then put a tea light in them and it changes colors. I got frustrated with them and started hammering them in. But, it worked.

I used to use a tea light. Unfortunately, you can't get decent sized pumpkins here in England, so I don't carve one now. I do however, go mad trying to find candy corn.

Last year we used a fake candle that flickered. It worked "okay" but I wasn't overly impressed. This year I will probably go back to plain old tealights, although, I've gotten some interesting ideas from this thread that I may have to try out.
