I am not Catholic or Lutheran so I do not fully grasp the whole Lent concept. I know from an outsider’s point of view that there is some fasting and penance going on, so that would pretty much leave me out of that whole business.

We as Americans have an odd relationship with the pumpkin. Sure, we stock up on the squash as decor during the Halloween season (which according to retailers begins in August), and adorn our tables as centerpieces with them during the eventide of Thanksgiving, but as far as a true dining offering we fall short.
