It's National Pumpkin Day, and of course we're excited because what could be better than a pumpkin?

This squash not only contains vitamins A, C, and E, it has potassium, beta-carotene, antioxidants, and fiber too. (You can even fight wrinkles by putting it on your face!)

And did we forget to mention that it tastes great and you can use it to tap into some serious carving creativity?

So in honor of National Pumpkin Day we've assembled some of our favorite Pinterest pins featuring this fabulous food, including some recipes from Health.com and just generally cool pumpkin pictures.
