Halloween is all about dressing up in costume, getting spooked, and collecting candy. But when I was growing up, it was also about watching Linus sit in that pumpkin patch once again, hoping to glimpse the Great Pumpkin. It just wouldn't be Halloween without it!

The Peanuts Gang was a big part of my childhood. Before all the elaborate animations, there was this group of kids who came into our homes to recognize all the major holidays. I even had books full of Peanuts cartoons. (wish I still had them now!)

So, even though I'm dressed as a Walker (or Biter, or Zombie) for this Halloween, part of me is sitting in that pumpkin patch while Linus explains the legend of the Great Pumpkin.

Happy Halloween!
