its tacky and i hate it

Who decided this is ok? As a huge proponent of the color orange, I wait all year for pumpkin season. I love to carve them, eat them, display them. They add such a pop to the sometimes gray days as winter rolls around. Evidently, a host of so-called designers decided this season that it would be cute to spray paint them into gaudy baubles instead of letting their natural beauty shine through. In addition to my aesthetic sense telling me that pumpkins are best left orange, my philosophical sense says it’s nearly a sin to rob them of their orange nature. So, while many gourds may have a lovely, sculptural shape, their essence is in their color. Please, don’t deny them this by oozing gold paint all over them.
