One of my all time favorite holiday shows is, “It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown”. And tonight at 7pm I will eagerly tune in and watch the Peanuts gang, as has been my tradition every year since I was a child.
For just one night I will be transported back to a time when the only thing I had to worry about was what the Great Pumpkin was going to bring me.
But by far the best part of It’s the Great Pumpkin is when Sally meets Linus in the pumpkin patch (notice how she’s all hearts), misses out on ‘tricks or treats’ (notice how she turns), and jacks him right there in said pumpkin patch.
Poor Sally was scorned early on. I wonder what she’s like today. What about Linus? Is he still waiting in the Pumpkin patch and does he still have that security blanket? And poor Charlie Brown. Is he the Bill Gates of the cartoon world? or dare I say, still trying to kick that blasted football. I betcha Lucy is a Tiger Mom, and has Pig Pen learned about soap and water? Did Peppermint Patty ever come out? and did Schroeder ever become a famous classical pianist or did he tap out before he hit puberty?
Don’t judge me. I know I’ve put way too much thought in trying to figure out the fates of my beloved Peanuts characters.
What’s your favorite holiday movie or T.V. show?
Which “Peanuts” Character Are You?
You got: Charlie Brown
You’re a classic over-analyzer. You’re charismatic, have a core group of friends who are very loyal to you, and are highly intelligent — but that intelligence often leads you to overthink most things in life. To feel satisfied, you have to consider everything from every angle, from Christmas to crushes. This way of thinking makes you highly intuitive and emotionally aware, and also gives you a great sense of humor and ability to view situations objectively.
My Comment: Well, I’ll be damned. This is spot on. I am the one at the movies that says, “Um that just doesn’t make sense. That’s not logical.” My friends and family tell me to suspend belief but, Ah Ra Um, I can’t. I try.
I do consider everything from every angle, especially relationships — frienships, romantic relationships, work relationsips and the bottom line is how are they going to benefit me.
Beign emotionally aware is a bit of an understatement for me. I am quite hypersensative to other peoples emotions, which is quite beneficial. However it can be a bit problematic too, especially when it comes to those people, I put in the not beneficial to me category. I find myself being quite unsympathetic to their emotional needs. Need to work on that.
Anyway take the quiz via BuzzFeed and let us know which Peanuts character you are.
