Late Halloween night after everyone has gone to sleep, the great pumpkin roams our neighborhood, searching and sniffing out large bags of candy. Not just any old bags of candy will do. He only accepts voluntary offerings.
Padme, Elisabeth and the pirate queen collected vast amounts of artery clogging, energy stealing, nutrient robbing legal addictive stimulants. They munched as they walked, then stuffed as they watched The Legend of Sleepy Hollow and Bell, Book and Candle with Jimmy Stewart. Before toddling off with their sick stomachs, they left all but their favorite full sized candy bars on the table as a free will offering for the Great Pumpkin.
When they awoke, the bags were no where to be found but in their place were three very cool gifts.
You might wonder what the Great Pumpkin does with all this loot. Well, legend has it that he gives some to Santa for stockings, leaves some for the annual gingerbread houses, uses some for occasional rewards and throws the junk away. What a smart pumpkin. That is just what I would do with it!
