Today's Kindness #201: October 26, 2022


🎃Paint Positive Messages on Pumpkins🎃

National Pumpkin Day recognizes a favored autumn decoration and food on October 26th. Not only do they make great fall decorations, but the pumpkin also completes a variety of tasty recipes. Join a pumpkin competition or visit any of the many fall festivals featuring beautiful gourds.

By October 26th, we're in a frenzy of pumpkin obsession. We cannot wait for the big November holiday for pumpkin pie.  We need pumpkin everything! Bars, cookies, coffee, cheesecake, pasta, and oatmeal. Pumpkin Chunkin', pumpkin patches, festivals, bake-offs, and television specials. Let's not forget jack-o-lantern carving, too! This fruit grabs Americans' attention.

Ah, pumpkins! They bring to mind wonderful memories and inspire us to artistry. Whether we frame the perfect photo at the local pumpkin patch, carve up the scariest jack-o-lantern or whip up the tastiest batch of pumpkin bars, this is a holiday worth sharing. Roast some pumpkin seeds while the family rakes up those fall leaves. Pour a mug of hot apple cider and bake up your favorite pumpkin recipes, too. Or try a new one.

What better way to combine the spirit of Halloween and kindness than the power of positivity?

An easy way to spread cheer in the spooky season is by making a Jack-o-lantern an instrument for optimism. Bust out your paints or Sharpies and get creative. Check out our quote collection for more inspiration!
