MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY HOLIDAYS TO ALL!
It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown (1966, dir. Bill Melendez)
“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.”

I am so glad I have this book. :)
