Amelia and her friend Linus
are anticipating the arrival of The Great Pumpkin (TM)
this halloween. They believe he can be summoned by channeling the spirits of your ordinary side-of-the-road pumpkin vendor pumpkin and carving his likeness into the side of it. Linus and the rest of the Peanuts gang
believe that doing so will bring them great fortune (i.e, toys). Amelia thinks she's got a pretty good chance that smiling at it and at us will do the trick. She's probably right.
