There are many types of pies to celebrate during the year, from classics like cherry pies to creative picks like coconut cream pies. Today is National Pumpkin Pie Day, which celebrates a crowd pleasing favorite – the pumpkin pie!
Pumpkin pie is commonly served during the fall, at Halloween parties and Thanksgiving dinners. This is because pumpkins are a symbol of Thanksgiving and their carved cousin, the jack o lantern, is a symbol of Halloween.
Even though pumpkin pies get a lot of recognition during the fall, National Pumpkin Pie Day actually falls on December 25. This is why you see them so frequently at the end of the year; there’s so many occasions to bake a pumpkin pie!
