The Most Sincere Pumpkin Patch

There are three things I have learned never to discuss with people: religion, politics and the Great Pumpkin.
~Linus Van Pelt


Linus' goal every year is to create the most sincere pumpkin patch.  As he explains it, "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."


In Bead Land, of course, the most sincere pumpkin patch is created from bits of lampwork and sterling silver and porcelain and pressed glass.


And when the Great Beaded Pumpkin sees how sincere this bracelet and earrings set is, with lampwork glass hearts, no less, he will rise up out of it...


...and give beaded gifts and presents to all the good boys and girls of the world.


Linus: [to Sally as she walks away with everyone else] Hey, aren't you going to stay to greet the Great Pumpkin? Huh? It won't be long now. If the Great Pumpkin comes, I'll still put in a good word for you!
[realizes what he just said]

Linus: Good grief! I said "if"! I meant, "when" he comes!

Linus: I'm doomed. One little slip like that could cause the Great Pumpkin to pass you by. Oh, Great Pumpkin, where are you?

Don't slip up.  The Great Pumpkin is watching this pumpkin patch and YOU!
