If I could worship at The Altar of The Great Pumpkin, I probably would… right alongside young Linus van Pelt. The story of Linus and his lonely night awaiting the arrival of The Great Pumpkin has been delighting generations in IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN, and for the PEANUTS’ 65th Anniversary, there’s a lot of ways to bring some of that magic to life in new ways this Halloween (and Harvest) season. From cool items from Oriental Trading to THE PEANUTS MOVIE events at real-life pumpkin patches, today’s entry into my annual 31 Days of Halloween here on THE ROCK FATHER Magazine is all about Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus and Lucy, and the whole PEANUTS gang.
Want to bring some PEANUTS Magic to Halloween & Thanksgiving? Oriental Trading has a full assortment of fun activities, decorations and more. There’s Halloween tote bags, paper plates, cups, napkins, sippy bottles, scratch-offs, crayon sets, finger puppets and foam craft sets (which my girls absolutely love) – all available at ridiculously-affordable prices. Check out these items and more on the Oriental Trading website.
Want to make an attempt at finding The Great Pumpkin yourself? THE PEANUTS MOVIE has special events happening at real-life pumpkin patches in select markets across the country. You can get your picture taken with large PEANUTS character inflatables, or find cool takeaways like Pumpkin stencils. Check out this list for a patch near you, and be sure to call ahead just to make sure that the events are good to go.
And what Halloween would be complete without a proper viewing of the special that started it all? IT’S THE GREAT PUMPKIN, CHARLIE BROWN is back on ABC on Tuesday, October 20, 2015 at 8pm ET. Of course, you could always get it on Blu-ray, DVD or Digital HD for viewing any time!
