It's a Halloween Hump Day! We will have more details about the Halloween Parade and other events in the city later, but we thought we'd point you to It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown videos on Youtube (part 1, 2, 3), in case you missed ABC's airing last night. You can also get it on DVD, and there's also the book It's the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown: The Making of a Television Classic.

Halloween originated as a pagan holiday but has now turned into a celebration when kids overdose in candy, some confuse costume with wearing as little as possible and stores mark it as the eve of starting their Christmas advertising. So maybe it is still quite pagan.

Are you dressing up for Halloween today? Are you headed to work as a diaper-wearing-astronaut- in-love or is that one the docket for this evening?
