When Cinderella’s fairy godmother turned a pumpkin into a carriage - she did more than just help the servant girl get to a ball… The pumpkin, at the time Charles Perrault wrote down his version of Cinderella, was synonymous with poor, common people. It was the food of peasants.
But how did the pumpkin end up in pies at Thanksgiving or carved into Jack-O-Lanterns?
I’m Joy Cherrick. I write about natural history, folklore and exploring how people have interacted with God’s creation through time. On Naturalist Kids Podcast, we bring many of the forgotten stories of nature to life to encourage you in your quest to learn more about this great world. We’ll tell you the stories behind why a black cat crossing your path is bad luck. Why the pumpkin is the staple of a Thanksgiving feast. And why a mother cottontail rabbit is hardly ever found near her nest of kits. In each episode, I am joined by one of my six children.
In our first episode, we are going to tell you about Native American’s, Pilgrims, Cinderella and how many types of flowers the pumpkin vine creates in order to get a pumpkin.
