Happy Friday Stampers! Did you know that today is National Pumpkin Day? OK, by now most of us have already been in a “Pumpkin Spice Latte” frenzy! If you’re like I am, you almost can set your clock by the day Starbuck’s starts serving their fall delight! To be totally honest, I didn’t even know there WAS a National Pumpkin Day! 🙂
Here are some fun “pumpkin” facts to celebrate the day:
- The word pumpkin originates from the word pepon, which means “large melon” in Greek.
- A 2,145-pound pumping from Streator, Illinois holds the current North American record. Grown by Gene McMullen in 2015, the great pumpkin weighed in a few hundred pounds lighter than the current world record pumpkin from 2014. At 2,323-pounds, the giant pumpkin from Switzerland retains the world record prize.
Now, of course, National Pumpkin Day would not be complete without…you guessed it…a pumpkin project! Enjoy!
