I love Halloween. It’s one of my favorite holidays, has been since I was a kid. Some of my fondest memories are coming home from a long afternoon of trick-or-treating and putting on It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown while my brother and I sat on the floor sorting, trading, and eating our latest haul of candy.
While I don’t trick-or-treat anymore, I still make sure to watch the holiday special every year. And as it turns out, this is a big year for our favorite blockhead. It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown turns 50!
That seems like cause for a celebration. If you’re looking to up your viewing game or Halloween spirit in general, here’s a bunch of party ideas, decorations, recipes, and more inspired by the Great Pumpkin:
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown airs Wednesday October 19th 8pm on ABC.
