“Each year, the Great Pumpkin rises out of the pumpkin patch that he thinks is the most sincere. 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.”
Charles M. Schulz, It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown
I have found a very sincere pumpkin patch and am keeping watch for the Great Pumpkin.
Keep safe and think of all the candy that will be consumed today!!! Happy Halloween!

Hope you had a wonderful Halloween, ate lots of candy, and got a glimpse of the Great Pumpkin!
I think I almost saw him…but I think the Great Pumpkin found a more sincere pumpkin patch down the street. AAGHHH. Had a wonderful Halloween –
“I would rather sit on a pumpkin and have it all to myself than be crowded on a velvet cushion.” Henry David Thoreau
So…did you spot him?
Linus and I are ever hopeful…until next year!
Those are sincerely incredible candy facts! What are the pumpkin facts?
What a great question – I went to “Ask” and here are the US stats, which are formidable, without adding all the rest of us Halloween followers….
“In the United States of America, approximately, 50,000,000 pumpkins are used during the Halloween holiday. Every year the number of pumpkins increases.”
Oh MY GIDDY AUNT, as I like to say, although none of my aunts is the least bit giddy! If you are a candy maker or a pumpkin grower, I can see there must be a vested interest in keeping Halloween an active, well-celebrated festival.
Maybe there is The Great Pumpkin after all! When I was at Granville Island yesterday, there was a contest amongst the vendors on who wore the best costume. It was such fun – lots of laughter and creativity. No wonder Halloween continues to be, as you say, “an active, well-celebrated festival.”
