Pumpkin pie is delicious - any time of the year. The fixation in North America is caused by pumpkin harvest season (early fall) coinciding with Halloween. In warmer climes (e.g. India), pumpkin is an ingredient in savory dishes, e.g. pumpkin curry[^]. Pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A and is rich in anti-oxidants.
When my daughter was first starting to eat baby food, she really liked orange fruits and vegetables, especially pumpkin. At one point her nose and cheeks turned orange. Our pediatrician reassured us that it was just her diet .
Maybe Americans - of the North at least - do a big thing of this because they have it fresh only once a year. We eat different kind of squash (shape, size, color, taste) all year long. They are just good. You should try them...
Totally not planed but today in my lunch box there are pepper squases filed with rich rice and sided with home made pickled cucumbers...

I remember being astonished some years ago when distant cousins-in-law came to dinner. Retired North of Ireland pig farmers. I served a lamb roast with roast spuds and pumpkin and green beans. They had to ask what the delicious orange veg was, and were most surprised to hear it was something they considered stock feed.
