It's that time of the year again when one of the major events on the calender of many is the one used for most of the sales pitches in stores and shopping malls.

Our local shopping area is no different evidenced by the Halloween section of the 100 yen shop, the Halloween posters in the local clothes stores and this oversized pumpkin in the center of the lounge area.

Apparently some kind of prize is being offered to customers who can guess the weight of this pumpkin. But of customers would have to buy something at one of the stores and write their guess on the receipt with their name and address.
Do you care have a guess?

If I'm not mistaken to the prize sponsored will be a members card valued at three thousand yen that can be used in many shopping malls here in Japan. If you were here, would you give it a go?

Do you grow these kind of pumpkins in your garden? Have you even seen them this size growing in the field?
Let me know in the comments below.

I'm surprised to see this size pumpkin here because I'm almost sure it was imported. My guess would be that they bought at the local Costco which in just 20 minutes away on foot.

Yeah so like the imported pumpkin, the celebration of Halloween 🎃 here has been adopted from American pop culture though its roots are not originally American. Foreign stores like Costco and theme parks like Universal Studios have helped to spread this popular culture with the supply of Halloween goods and the promotion of annual Halloween themed events.

People are interested in fun activities for their kids so costume parties for kids have become pretty common recently especially if your child is enrolled in private English conversation classes.

Of course some like the chance to have fun and take part in an event. We often tend not to think about the original reason behind the season. Whether it be this or any other season.

What are the stores like in your area? Is the promotional engine in full gear for Halloween? 🎃

Whether you'll be celebrating by taking part in the events and activities of the season or not, be sure to do something that interests you to pass the time. Maybe planting some pumpkins in your garden for selling next year this time is an option. Lol

Have a great weekend.

Thank you. 😃

There are many pumpkin farms around the area where I live. That would be considered a medium to small pumpkin here! A man not too far from me grew a 2,046 pound pumpkin this year! It is massive!

You've got to be kidding me. I'd love to see that. I can imagine putting it in the cafeteria at my school and having students guess the weight. Mind blown. Are they grown for eating @melinda010100 ?

Those huge pumpkins are just grown for fun and for 'biggest Pumpkin' competions.

Certainly even Charlie Brown would be impressed with the size of this 2064lb pumpkin. It's towering over the kids in the video. Truly Massive!! Thanks for sharing.
!ALIVE !LOL

What's a dry orange good for?
Nothing at all. It's juiceless.

Oh cool! It's Halloween season. If you can join, why not? If you're pretty good with weights and all of things, I guess it would be ok to join. Holidays are times when merchants try to come up with lots of marketing ideas to sell more. A lot of smaller businesses are still struggling to get back on track. I don't mind supporting local and independent businesses. Here, when -ber months start, the only thing on most folks' minds is Christmas. LOL! I'm the grinch. Anyway, enjoy your Sunday!

I love Halloween, but the promo hasnt started for it yet here - probably in another two weeks, although we will be in Italy for it this year (our last night on vacation there before we fly back home) - so I'm looking forward to seeing how Italy do it - we'll be in Verona !
