We cannot imagine the Halloween season without pumpkins. Pumpkins are carved into jack-o'-lanterns and serve as Halloween decorations for the spooky holiday.
Pumpkin is a winter squash that is generally cooked before it is consumed. Pumpkins are native to North-Eastern Mexico and the southern part of the United States. Pumpkin is a staple dish at every Thanksgiving and Halloween dinner. Boil it, steam it, mash it or roast it; Pumpkins taste great no matter the process used to prepare them. After all, who doesn't love Pumpkin spiced lattes and pumpkin pies?
Pumpkins are also a part of folklore and fiction. The 'Legend of Sleepy Hollow,' the 'Headless Horseman, and the 'Story of Cinderella' all portray pumpkins in one form or another. Halloween feels incomplete without a carved pumpkin names contest, where you name your carved pumpkins with cool pumpkin pun names to stand out from the crowd of Jack-O-Lanterns.
