Pumpkin varieties are grown in the United States most often for the Haloween season, where they are carved, hallowed out & decorated for the trick-or-treat evening of All Hallows, the night before All Saints Day.  The inside vegetable is often saved and cooked as a pie filling, while the seeds are toasted, salted and eaten as a snack.....In other countries, pumpkin is a staple vegetable, but is not usually the recognizable variety seen in the U.S.  It is a squash, sold in chunks by weight and boiled then served as a vegetable.       mms
