Students Enjoy National Pumpkin Pie Day

December 25th, National Pumpkin Pie Day Dishes up the slice many Americans are looking for around the dinner table. As they enjoy time with family or friends, they also take the opportunity to honor the ever humble and often favored pumpkin pie. 


Often eaten during the fall and winter months and invented for Thanksgiving and Christmas tables, in the United States pumpkin pie is a traditional dessert. According to Pumpkin pie became a familiar addition to the Thanksgiving dinner in the early seventeenth century when the pilgrims brought it back to New England. Initially, the pumpkin pie was prepared by stuffing the pumpkin with apples, spices and sugar, then baking it whole.


Donovan Shallue, a Arrowhead High school Freshman says, “I normally have pumpkin pie during Thanksgiving or Christmas.” 

Many seasonal pumpkin pie flavored products fill the grocery store shelves. We find the flavor in ice cream, pudding, coffee, lattes, cheesecake, pancakes, candy, and even beer. All season long advertisers pitch pumpkin in their seasonal drinks and scents.
