Have there always been so many pumpkin flavored things in the fall? It seems like there are more pumpkin flavored things than usual; pumpkin cream cheese, pumpkin scones, McDonald's pumpkin pie, pumpkin spiced drinks, candles, pumpkin pancakes,etc. Has it always been this great or am I just noticing it because I skipped an American autumn? Ahhh if you write pumpkin too much it will start to look really strange. p.s. Has anyone read the Night Circus? I love it so much! It's perfect for fall and life.
