Sept 21 : 01 day1 to Fall

Did you know that pumpkins can grow to be over 1,000 pounds?

The harvesting of pumpkins — which, along with winter squash, are a variety of gourds — is a true harbinger of Autumn.

Many families carve pumpkins as part of their celebrations for Halloween, which falls in the middle of Fall on October 31.

Do you feel that? The crisp morning air is a sure sign that the Fall season is right around the corner. As the days get shorter and the temperatures fall, Autumn heralds its coming with fiery red leaves and bright orange pumpkins. Get yourself ready to fall back into Fall with Holidays on the Net’s fun-filled Autumn trivia. Join us for a new “Did You Know?” fact each day as we countdown to Autumn! So stop by again tomorrow.
