it’s the great pumpkin….

I grew up reading the Peanuts comic strip and was in awe of Charles Schultz.  He always seemed to zoom right in on whatever kids were thinking and feeling. I remember that every fall, there would be several references to the Great Pumpkin as well as Charlie Brown’s inevitable suffering at the hands of his antagonist Lucy when he tried to play football.  Long after I became an adult, I still looked forward to watching the television specials about the special group of kids that everyone knew and identified with. One year while I was teaching high school choral music, we performed “You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown” and I was able to relive those memories once again. My Dad and I loved everything about Peanuts and the gang.

So, here is my personal tribute to the brilliant Charles Schultz and his band of brothers (and sisters.)

By the way, if you’d like the cutout panel of the pumpkin, please CLICK HERE to download the svg file.

Dad, if you’re listening, this is for you, too.
