Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Wednesday October 26, 2016 is Pumpkin Day. "There’s one thing that represents October more than anything else, and it’s not Halloween (though it’s involved). That thing? The pumpkin. It starts appearing on shelves and farmers market’s stands on the last week or two of September, and is the herald that lets you know that Pumpkin Pies, Jack-o-Lanterns, and all the joys of fall are just around the corner. This day celebrates these noble squash’s, and the history and tradition tied up in their iconic orangeness. Often when people think of Halloween, they think of Jack-o-Lanterns and pumpkins. What many people don’t know is that the pumpkin is actually a plant from the new world, like all squash, so the image of pumpkin jack-o-lanterns in front of ancient medieval homes is just plain wrong. These are an all American (And South American) plant, and the jack-o-lantern at Halloween is a distinctly New World thing. So let’s learn a little bit about the Pumpkin in honor of Pumpkin Day, starting with what the word pumpkin means. It’s pretty simple, as it comes from the Greek word pepon, or ‘Large Melon’, but it didn’t go straight to pumpkin. First it was pompon to the French, and then pumpion to the British. It was the Americans that finally changed the word to its present Pumpkin, and so it’s been ever since! This day is a great opportunity to add this delicious squash to your diet, whether in the form of a traditional pumpkin pie, or a rich and savory pumpkin soup. The first step to celebrating Pumpkin Day is simple, go buy a bunch of pumpkins, roast them, and make yourself an all pumpkin meal! Pumpkin Soup, Pumpkin Bread, Pumpkin Cake, Pumpkin Muffins, and a warm cup of Pumpkin Spice Coffee for dessert!" ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #fit #follow #like #celebrate #enjoy #wp #fb #twitter #tweet #buffer #tagsforlike #pumpkin #halloween #pumpkinpatch #pumpkinday #share #blog #pop #ig #insta #linkinbio #lpt #harvest #decor #pic #photo #oftheday #thanksgiving #holiday . @instagram @sharpharmade

Follow me on Instagram at sharpharmade! . Monday October 24, 2016 is United Nations Day. "The United Nations, as an organization, is well known to just about everyone around the world. They participate in activities ranging from assistance in times of disaster, both those coming from natural disasters and those caused by the wages of war. They offer medical assistance to those in need in these places, as well as providing clean water, food, and places to rest and recover. The UN has been represented as both hero and villain. This day celebrates the foundation of this great organization, and is a great opportunity for you to learn the truth about its past, its present, and what its plans are for the future. The United Nations is an intergovernmental organization intent on create co-operation between all the governments of the world. It’s original intent was to replace the League of Nations, and prevent another war like World War II from occurring. All the member states of the United Nations contribute finances to its operation to help further its goals. Aside from World Peace its role has grown to include protecting human rights, promoting social and economic development, and providing aid around the world in cases of famine, natural disaster, and armed conflict. The UN also represents a series of specialized agencies that enable it to do its job in each of the areas it focuses on. This day celebrates the original enactment of the foundational charter for the UN. Celebrations are held around the world. Some of them are as simple as lighting up bridges and buildings with the trademark blue of the United Nations, others represent art from around the world and are used as part of an Art Installation." ^sPm - #sharpharmade Fr 'Days of the Year' . #fit #follow #like #celebrate #unitednations #wp #fb #tweet #twitter #buffer #lpt #linkinbio #tagsforlike #pic #photo #oftheday #blog #pop #ig #insta #nation #united #bhbe #un . @instagram @sharpharmade
