Expats without Pumpkins
I’m an “expat.” That’s short for expatriate… someone who is living outside the country of their legal residence. I’m an American living in the Netherlands.
I am a guest in this country and firmly believe that you should embrace the celebrations and customs of your host country. (Just like I’d expect of expats in the United States).
With that said, there are a few American traditions I miss… One of them is pumpkin carving. Perhaps it’s just that I haven’t found a pumpkin source yet… (I need a Gouda & Gourds shop…)
For those who are pumpkin-less and want to carve, I found a virtual pumpkin carving site.

Interesting how a pumpkin post turned into a creative marketing topic…
I know… it’s barely a substitute as there are not seeds to toast, nor pumpkin guts to get all over your hand and arms… but still a bit of fun…
