    I like the ones with a black light in.

    We have battery powered tealights because they last until the next morning.

    I’ve used a mix of real candles (votives because they last longer than tea lights), battery tea lights, and other battery lights they market for pumpkins.

    We’ve always used real tea lights and have never had a problem. Mostly because we’re frugal though and they are cheaper than those cute battery-operated ones. 😉

    We use the battery operated ones so we don’t have to keep replacing them or relighting them.

    We’ve always used real candles. My childhood, my siblings’ childhood, my nieces and nephew, cousins, etc….no tragic accidents with a candle.

    I’ve always used real tea lights and never had a problem.  I figure the inside of a pumpkin is way to wet to catch on fire.  I might be concered about it getting knocked over if I were putting in on a wooden porch or steps.  Our front area is concrete, so there’s nothing to worry about there.

    I have always used real candles or tea lights, because that’s what I have around the house (we have a huge bag of tea-lights we take camping with us).
