While you're frying up some eggs and bacon, we're cooking up something else: a way to celebrate today's food holiday.
Crown yourself 'Pumpkin King' and Queen of Halloween Town - October 26 is National Pumpkin Day!
You might traditionally look at October as pumpkin central already, but this fall squash deserves its own day outside of Halloween.
Although we're not entirely sure where pumpkins came from, it's almost certain they first appeared in North America. Pumpkins have long been a part of our culture, from folktales about shadowy ghouls with pumpkins for heads to Jack-o'-lanterns scaring off evil spirits, but they also became a part of early American cuisine as well.
Of course, if you're not a fan of noshing on pumpkin, you can always enter a pumpkin chuckin' contest.
