Ghosts were introduced into Egypt on October 21, 2018, with the System message "Spooky Ghosts have been spotted across Egypt, don't touch!"
Despite the warning against touching ghosts, doing so will scare away the ghost, who leaves behind an Angry Pumpkin. A message appears in Main chat:
"As you reach out the ghost vanishes leaving this angry Pumpkin in its place..."
If you are wielding a knife, you have a choice of carving the pumpkin or picking it up. Otherwise, you may only pick up the pumpkin, which will go into your inventory as Spooky Pumpkin 1, Spooky Pumpkin 2, Spooky Pumpkin 3, or Spooky Pumpkin 4.
Pumpkins have been carved with stone, flint, and bone knives, as well as higher quality ones. When a pumpkin is carved, it may yield special Halloween resources, such as Gingerbread Tiles, Scarecrow Stuffing, or Pumpkin Paint.
"Your carving was a failure, but inside the Pumpkin you find some goodies..."
These resources can be used to build a special compound, the Spooky House.
To build a Spooky House, select Projects>Compound>Spooky House. From here you'll select an orientation (North, South, East, West) for your Spooky House.

Per Malard on Discord on October 25, 2018 at 5:10pm GMT:
dont go overboard, the ghosts are just random designs and the pumpkins are random designs
the contents of each ghost and pumpkin are random
so you will not find a pattern
