Pumpkin pie has been a part of the American diet since, well… since America has been America, and before. It is mentioned in Hannah Woolley’s Cookbook, written in English, in 1675. It has remained popular ever since, even featured in the 1844 song/poem, “Over The River And Through The Woods” with a line devoted to pumpkin pie in the lyrics. While it is most thought of with Thanksgiving affairs, it is equally as good during Christmas. In fact, it’s pretty good nearly any time of the year!
How to celebrate – Have some pumpkin pie. Find the lyric in “Over The River And Through The Woods”. Have a Merry Christmas.
