What better representation of a North American autumn is there, with Thanksgiving and Halloween in the mix, than the humble pumpkin. Whether its the smell or the taste or their appearance, pumpkins are a very distinctive fruit (yes, pumpkins are a fruit!). This past weekend, I went pumpkin picking with my girlfriend and truly forgot how much fun the experience was. We saw kids wearing pumpkin shirts, little babies wearing pumpkin hats, and parents enjoying pumpkin pie. I understand pumpkins are notoriously associated with Halloween where kids love carving pumpkins into cool or funny or scary faces, but why can't we enjoy them all year round? I guess like anything we would all get tired of pumpkins sooner or later. For those of you out there though who love pumpkins as much as me, here are five pumpkin items you can enjoy all year round!
