T-2: Turkey Weekend Countdown!

All-Things-Creative Wednesday

Pumpkins date back many centuries. The name pumpkin originated from the
Greek word for "large melon" which is "pepon." and was nasalized by the French
into "pompon." The English changed "pompon" to "Pumpion." Shakespeare
referred to the "pumpion" in his Merry Wives of Windsor. American
colonists in turn changed "pumpion" into "pumpkin."*
