Although the pumpkin is the oldest holiday item, others like the Party Hat, Santa Hat, and Halloween Mask are traded more often. This is most likely due to the fact that players cannot wear their Pumpkin and show off their wealth.
It is strongly recommended that a player banks their pumpkin, as it may accidentally be eaten. This precaution is extremely important because of the item's value and rarity. Other examples of consumable discontinued items are the Easter Egg and Half Full wine jug.
