Pumpkins and Spice... and something not nice?
I love pumpkins. I love carving them, eating them, roasting their seeds... Pumpkins are practically royalty in my world.

Jennifer Viegas wrote a piece for DiscoveryNews about a gourd dating back to 1793 France that may contain King Louis XVI's blood. The gourd has scorch markings on its facade that read: "Maximilien Bourdaloue on January 21st, dipped his handkerchief in the blood of Louis XVI after his beheading."
