Tomorrow is the annual time when the spooks, ghosts and ghoulies emerge from the woodwork and various nooks and crannies looking to engage in mischief and shenanigans. I must say the times they have changed from the more innocent days of my childhood. One thing that hasn’t changed over the decades is Linus’ determination, perseverance belief and faith that the Great Pumpkin will Make an appearance in the sincerest of pumpkin patches.
“With each year the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch he thinks is most sincere. He’s got to 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. Just wait and see, Charlie Brown. I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. I’ll see the Great Pumpkin. you wait, Charlie Brown. The Great Pumpkin will appear and I will be waiting for him.”
Perhaps the Great Pumpkin will one day materialize. Then it will sprinkle the earth with magic pumpkin seeds and all the goodness in everyone will come forward to do good in the world. Not to mention how healthy we will become thanks to the anti-oxidants, iron, zinc, magnesium, protein, vitamin K and the many other nutrients found in pumpkin seeds. So let’s give it up for Linus, Charlie Brown and the pumpkins that provide fun, nutrition and deliciousness.
