Here are some other fun Thanksgiving facts:
- Did you know pumpkins are native to the western hemisphere and have been cultivated as a crop long before foods such as corn and beans? Native Americans have been farming pumpkins for over 9,000 years.
- Did you know that an estimated 50 million pumpkin pies are consumed for Thanksgiving every year in the USA?
- Did you know that the largest pumpkin pie ever made was 20 feet long and weighed a hefty 3,699 lbs! It was made at the New Bremen Pumpkin fest in Ohio in 2010.
Now that’s a lot of pumpkin! We hope you and your little “pumpkins” will join us for play at Explore & More this November!
