I've seen, only in swamp biome, zombies and skeletons wear pumpkins

Does this happen only on Halloween??

Given that the latest update causes some skeletons/zombies to pick up and wear fallen items, there's a chance they found and picked up fallen pumpkins.

Nope, it's a halloween thing. I see many zombies and skeletons (ocean biome) with pumpkins and there are no pumpkins to pick up.

Edit: I saw one with a jack'o'lantern as helmet!

Oh... I was about to post about this. I was trying to take a screenshot first. (I actually died taking this screenshot...)
Yep I thinks it's because of Halloween, because it started right after 12pm.

It's only for halloween. If you want you can just change your computer time to halloween to always have them spawn like this until the code is removed.

5 seconds later I turned around and a creeper ended my life both in game and in real life.

Apparently, an easter egg causes zombies skeletons, etc. to wear pumpkins when they spawn when the clock for your computer is on Halloween. I haven't experienced this for myself yet because of this:

Yes, all what you have said is true. It is happening to me too (Exploring cave when doing a completely new world, turn around, jack o' lantern on a skele XD)

 if (this.getCurrentItemOrArmor(4) == null)
{
Calendar var1 = this.worldObj.func_83015_S();

if (var1.get(2) + 1 == 10 && var1.get(5) == 31 && this.rand.nextFloat() < 0.25F)
{
this.func_70062_b(4, new ItemStack(this.rand.nextFloat() < 0.1F ? Block.pumpkinLantern : Block.pumpkin));
this.field_82174_bp[4] = 0.0F;
}
  • if (var1.get(2) + 1 == 10 as in the 10th month
  • var1.get(5) == 31 as in the 31st day
  • this.func_70062_b(4, new ItemStack(this.rand.nextFloat() < 0.1F ? Block.pumpkinLantern : Block.pumpkin));
  • The func is the function to wear an item on a mobs head, and as you can see it will either wear "Block.pumpkinLantern : Block.pumpkin".

I have spawned a wither skeleton wearing a jack-O-lantern, which is rarer.
