I was in Virginia about three weeks before Halloween. There were tons of pumpkins displayed in front of both local supermarkets (the Mechanicsville Wal-Mart in my picture) and houses.

Before Halloween (31 Oct.) surely pumpkins are more for decorations than for eating. In the late autumn between Halloween and Thanksgiving (late November), many Americans all over use the leftover pumpkins to make pumpkin pie or pumpkin bread. Krispy Kreme even has pumpkin doughnuts as a seasonal favourite.





Excuse, this tip is not unique to Virginia, but to the USA (and Canada as I know). I will transfer it to my USA or Northern America page soon.
