Making Mealtime Meaningful: See How We’re Giving Back with the New 12 Tomatoes Cares Program →

Disco dancing and Halloween don’t seem like a natural fit on paper. Either way, there must be something to this connection because someone has come up with the perfect mash-up! Dave Hax is bringing Halloween and disco together in a very unusual way.

We are 100 percent here for it, though. When you first see what Dave Hax is doing, you would be forgiven for thinking that he is a bit of a nut case. It doesn’t look like he is actually trying to accomplish anything. Why is this man idly poking holes in pumpkins like that’s a thing to do? As it turns out, he’s got a plan and there is most definitely a method to all of the madness.

We thought that he was simply trying to make a geometric pumpkin design. That would be pretty cool, of course. But his plans blow those out of the water. This is the sort of Jack-o-lantern that is sure to make you wonder what you have been doing for all of these years. There’s always a better way to do something and Dave Hax usually has it all figured out.

As it turns out, he’s poking the holes so that the disco ball can shine brightly through the night! As soon as you are done following Dave’s instructions, there isn’t much left to do.

From that point, all you have to do is start picking out your disco/Halloween playlist. It’s not every day that you can play “Boogie Man” by KC and the Sunshine Band AND “Monster Mash” at the same party. Thanks to Dave’s hacks (sorry, we had to), anything is possible.

These disco balls don’t even have to be limited to Halloween. You can also use them for any fall gala that you may or may not have planned this year. As for us, we are to be hanging ours in the background of our work Zoom calls! Let’s see how long it takes our coworkers to notice this little piece of decor.
