October is a great month. I love the autumn colors. Halloween opens the door for some very great dress-up opportunities, and this fall I am taking advantage of as many as I can!

I hope you are fan of Charlie Brown and the Great Pumpkin special that comes on each year. I am always frustrated for the Peanuts gang. It seems things rarely work out for them. But they are still favorite characters from my childhood. This year, I did a few “Great Pumpkin” inspired photos. I hope you enjoy my Linus and Charlie Brown themed favorites.

Every time I watch this holiday special, I am still hopeful the Great Pumpkin will bring Linus candy, and that people will stop picking Charlie Brown to give rocks to. Seriously, a rock? Every time? Depressing.

I have included some of the movies best quotes.

Linus: “I’ve learned there are three things you don’t discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin.”

Linus: “On Halloween night, the Great Pumpkin rises from his pumpkin patch and flies through the air with his bag of toys to all the children.”


Lucy: “A person should choose a costume that contrasts her own personality.”

Charlie Brown: “I got a rock.”

Linus: ” He’ll come here because I have the most sincere pumpkin patch and he respects sincerity…He’s gotta pick this one. He’s got to. I don’t see how a pumpkin patch can be more sincere than this one. You can look around and there’s not a sign of hypocrisy. Nothing but sincerity as far as the eye can see.”

Charlie Brown: “Well, don’t take it too hard, Linus. I’ve done a lot of stupid things in my life, too.”

“Good Grief” actually kind of sums up the Peanuts gang.

I hope you enjoyed a few “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” inspired photos.

Come back next Friday for another Autumn/Halloween blog!
