When you think of Halloween, the first thing that comes to mind is the pumpkin. It is not. Legend has it that on the New Year of the Druids in ancient Western Europe which is November 1, New Year’s Eve, the Druids let young people gather and wear various strange masks, walking around the villages with carved carrot lanterns. Later on, it is said that because the material and shape of the pumpkin are more suitable for lantern making, it has gradually become the endorsement product of Halloween. And its orange color has become the traditional Halloween color. As the hometown of pumpkins, many places in the United States hold a pumpkin festival from September to October every year. People can choose their favorite pumpkins at will. And the classic pumpkin pie has become a traditional home-made dessert in the southern United States from late autumn to early winter.
