    Default "Carved pumpkin"

    hi, all. what do you think would be the best translation for "carve" in the carving of pumpkins for Halloween? "tallar", "calar"? any other (better) suggestion? (we don't really do this in my country, so I can't find the right word in Spanish for the activity...)

    thanks in advance!

    I would use "tallar"; I use that word a lot when referring to art projects

    Hola,

    Yo usaría tallar, si bien encontré las dos palabra utilizadas, tanto tallar como calar. Se utiliza mucho más tallat que calar.

    Para Halloween se suelen colocar calabazas talladas con velas dentro, como adorno en las casas

    Ya se acerca Halloween o Día de las Brujas y pedir golosinas por el barrio, disfrazarse y tallar calabazas son parte de la diversión de los niños

    Poco a poco logró perfeccionar el arte de tallar calabazas y aprendió mucho sobre pintura y caligrafía al mismo tiempo
