A pumpkin is for all year round not just for Halloween…
There are a huge variety of pumpkins and all shapes, colours and sizes which can be used in savoury and sweet dishes.
Obviously the pumpkin has a Samhain connection and I think with that comes the Crone association as well so it works well in any celebration or honouring dish for either.
Pumpkin seeds not only make a yummy snack they also work brilliantly in prosperity magic.
Bake pumpkin into pies and casseroles to bring abundance and money to your life I also think the pumpkin has fabulous healing properties too…a big ole slice of pumpkin pie sure makes me feel better anyway.
