The Great Pumpkin
It's The Great Pumpkin!
Every Halloween, The Great Pumpkin rises out of the most sincere pumpkin patch and brings treats to all the good children of the world. Watching The Great Pumpkin was always a big event when I was a kid. We had four channels on TV, and it was a special occasion to watch the once-a-year Peanuts specials!

Quotes from the Great Pumpkin
Linus: "There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin."
(As Lucy cuts a pumpkin open with a knife and begins "gutting" it in order to make it into a jack-o'-lantern, causing Linus to flinch in horror) and say, "Oh! You didn't tell me you were going to kill it!"
The Great Pumpkin Board Game
Did you know there is a Great Pumpkin board game? It would be perfect for playing during commercials or on rainy days. Make it an annual tradition.
Charlie Brown goes trick-or-treating in his ghost costume with far too many eye-holes ("I had a little trouble with the scissors"), and after each house when the kids announce what they got, he utters the famous sad line, "I got a rock."
Linus: "We'll just sit here in the pumpkin patch, and you can see the Great Pumpkin with your OWN EYES."
Sally: "If you try to hold my hand, I'll slug you."
Sally, when she goes with Linus to the pumpkin patch, does not believe in The Great Pumpkin and says, "Welcome to the twentieth century".

These artificial pumpkins are great! They look real, and they never rot. You can use them indoors or outdoors, and they are carveable. The only thing is you can't put a real candle inside, because they will burn. Use a flashlight.
