S is really not into decorating for holidays or seasons. Not even a little. I told him a wanted a pumpkin and he looked at me with confusion and asked, “But why?”
No matter what I said, I could not convince him that carving pumpkins with me was a good idea.

I’m pretty pleased with how it turned out!
I imagine that they could have grown sparkle pumpkins at Hogwarts.
