5. They Brighten up the Room

I love “pumpkin time,” because when I put them in my living room, it always gives it a nice look. Pumpkins really do brighten up the room. Not just because they are orange. Did you know that there are green pumpkins too?

4. You Can Make Pumpkin Pie

I am not a big fan of sweets, but around Halloween, I like pumpkin pie. Pumpkin pie is one of my favorites. Around Halloween, you can easily get a pumpkin at your nearest grocery store, take it home and make pumpkin pie out of it.

3. They Have a Unique Look to Them

Pumpkins always have a unique look to them. Perhaps this is one of the reasons why I am obsessed with them? Pumpkins always have a different shape to them. I also love how some of them get bumps all over them.

One of the reasons I like them is because you can carve them. Do you enjoy carving pumpkins? If you do, then you should think about entering your pumpkin into a pumpkin carving contest.

As many of you may know, my favorite time of the year is Halloween time. During Halloween time, you get to see all kinds of pumpkins. Pumpkins are a symbol of Halloween.

Those are 5 reasons I have an obsession with pumpkins. I am sure there are many other reasons why I like them. What about you? What do you like the most about pumpkins?
