With Halloween in the rear-view, our attention is turning toward the upcoming holiday season. In the United States, Thanksgiving is the next major holiday, though Christmas preparations like to make an early appearance. However, whether your focus is on Thanksgiving or Christmas first, there’s a little berry that often shows up on tables over the next two months. The Cranberry.
Whether you like Halloween or not, pumpkins are a mainstay of Fall decorations, food choices, and all-around-fun. Pumpkins come in all sorts of different shapes and sizes. From adorable baby pumpkins, to flat, white pumpkins, to humongous, award-winning pumpkins. Some are better for decoration and others for baking. Depending on your preferred way of expressing creativity, Pumpkins provide all the options.
One of my favorite aspects of fall is the changing colors. I know I’m not alone, especially considering there are whole maps forecasting when peak fall foliage will occur. Mid-October is usually when leaves turn across central Wisconsin.
