great pumpkin


Dear Great Pumpkin,

I am looking forward to your arrival on Halloween night. I hope you will bring me lots of presents. You must get discouraged because more people believe in Santa Claus more than in you. Well, let’s face it… Santa Claus has had more publicity. But being number two, perhaps you try harder. Everyone tells me you are a fake, but I believe in you.

P.S. If you really are a fake, don’t tell me. I don’t want to know.

“Dad, do you actually think we’ll see the Great Pumpkin this year?”

“What have I been telling you all these years kiddo? The truth is out there…just don’t tell your mother we’re here. She’s not ready to meet the Great Pumpkin yet.”
