A pumpkin can be used for many different things. Pumpkins come from America. Americans used to write poems about pumpkins. Russian believe that eating pumpkin seeds can help to get rid of parasitic worms. They were also used to make a lot of beer in the 17th century. There are lots of different species of pumpkins: orange, white, red, green and even blue pumpkins. They can be used for many different things. I definately recommend watching this video. It's very interesting.
