The pumpkin wars

September is here and many people's thoughts have turned to fall. One of the biggest events on social media has been the launch of all-things pumpkin spiced. Honestly I probably fall in the middle when it comes to the craze. I will drink a pumpkin beer on occasion (it's not my favorite) and I'll add some pumpkin spiced creamer to my coffee from time to time, but I don't embark in the pumpkin Oreos, Cheerios or other pumpkin infused flavors.

But somehow along the way I've found myself in a pumpkin spice war with my buddy Tom Harness and his team at Harness Digital Marketing (look them up for your online marketing needs). Although his team members Eleni and Lynsey are actually on #TeamPumpkin (like me). Because it's all taking place on social media, everyone can participate. We went from using gifs and memes that others have made to creating our own.

So share your ORIGINAL memes or gifs using the hashtag #TeamPumpkin or #PumpkinSucks and get in on the action. Here's a few of the original creations. This "war" with the originals just started, so we expect things to ramp up in the next 51 days (I'm assuming it's over when Halloween is over).
