Can you imagine that? That is absolutely insane! I think that the most that I have ever had in my year is many seven… tops, and the most I have seen lit in one place… maybe twenty. Jeeze, I bet that would have been an amazing site! Imagine all the pumpkin pies that could be made after that! Or number of pumpkin seeds! Hopefully they used them well!

Now I must say, yes Snickers are good, but I would much rather take a Kit-Kat, or a Areo over a Snickers any day!
