Okay, tonight I’ll probably miss “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown” airing on ABC (but only because ‘Arrow’ is new over on the CW). Yes, even though I don’t celebrate Halloween, I tend to watch Mr. Schulz’s special each year. See, I have a problem with the “embracing of the darkness” that celebrating “All Hallow’s Eve” seems to bring with it. However, I don’t see that as the focal point of the Charlie Brown classic. Rather, Mr. Schulz seems to have presented a very profound study of those who hold Halloween most dear. And of all characters in his comic, he uses Linus as the vehicle of that study. Linus, (the one most versed in Biblical Scripture and Doctrine) is the one who believes and preaches about ‘The Great Pumpkin’. I wonder if Mr. Schulz was sneaking a lesson about the naivety (and maybe hypocrisy) of Christians celebrating Halloween. hmmmmm…
