Holiday Happenings: The Great Pumpkin

As you busily prepare for Halloween, be sure to take a moment for It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, an animated classic by the wonderful Charles Schultz. Here at Boottique, we love the Peanuts gang! Nothing puts us in the Halloween spirit like watching Linus eagerly await the arrival of the Great Pumpkin on Halloween night, even suggesting his fellow friends sing “pumpkin carols” to entice its appearance. As Linus receives grief from his friends for persistently believing in the Great Pumpkin, he states, “There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics, and the Great Pumpkin.” Here’s to hoping the Great Pumpkin appears! Enjoy a brief clip from the animated version of the comic strip.
