#Hashtag: National Pumpkin Day


Today is the day that we celebrate the pumpkin. The orange gourd is often already celebrated during the month of October through the carving of Halloween jack-o-lanterns. Many Twitter users are posting pictures of their carved pumpkins to promote the celebration of National Pumpkin Day.

Others are discussing their love for pumpkin flavored foods and drinks, not just the vegetable.

But not everyone enjoys the pumpkin flavored items of the season and can’t help but express the hatred.

However, there are historical facts about the uses of pumpkins floating around on Twitter as well, just to keep things interesting.
