The Holiday

National Pumpkin Day is held annually October 26, just days before Halloween.

What is a pumpkin?

According to WikiPedia, a pumpkin is a cultivar of a squash plant, most commonly of Cucurbita pepo, that is round, with smooth, slightly ribbed skin, and deep yellow to orange coloration. The thick shell contains the seeds and pulp. Sometimes you will see a white pumpkin, which has become very popular recently.

The word pumpkin originates from the Greek word pepon “large melon”.

Pumpkin Spicy!

Like her, I am not too big on Everything Pumpkin Spicy. Pumpkin Spice is very popular during the fall.
