While we wait, a few pumpkin facts:
The world’s largest jack o’lantern was carved from the world’s largest pumpkin on October 31, 2005 in Northern Cambria, Pennsylvania, United States by Scott Cully.
The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which is Greek for “large melon”.
The term jack-o’-lantern originally meant a night watchman, or man with a lantern.
1.5 billion pounds (680,000,000 kilograms) of pumpkins are produced each year in the United States.
Adding a tablespoon of canned pumpkin to your dog or cat’s food will add fiber that aids digestion.
Pumpkins are a very good source of beta-carotene.
Pumpkins are sometimes the subject of poetry:
Oh!—fruit loved of boyhood!—the old days recalling, When wood-grapes were purpling and brown nuts were falling! When wild, ugly faces we carved in its skin, Glaring out through the dark with a candle within! -- The Pumpkin, John Greenleaf Whittier
