Mrs. Charming tries to bake without magic, which is forbidden to use on Pumpkin Moon Night, and instead, he burns everything. After failing to collect as much candy as Parsely Hazel tries to beat him to choosing the biggest pumpkin. When Parsely wins that race too, Hazel breaks the taboo by enchanting her pumpkin with magic. It not only grows larger than expected, but gains arms and sentience. It befriends the plant-loving Posie, and is able to out-smart her in a game of tic tac toe. Its happy dancing and joyous laughter at experiencing the wonders of life is quickly doused by the charmers force-feeding it butter, cinnamon, cloves, eggs, flour, milk, nutmeg and sugar until it dies. It explodes into slices of pumpkin pie. Too disgusted to consume it themselves, they feed the baked corpse of their murdered Jack-O-Lantern friend to their unaware family and friends, without informing them beforehand about the fate of victim they were eating. It turns out Parsely won the pumpkin race by enchanting his broom.
