Linus, from the Peanuts cartoons of Charles Schultz, used to spend the evening of Halloween waiting in a pumpkin patch for the Great Pumpkin, who, sadly, never arrived. But if only he had let go of the unobtainable vision of the Great Pumpkin, Linus might have seen that he was surrounded by quite lovely (and pie-worthy) Lesser Pumpkins.
What entirely obtainable treat will you reach for this Halloween?
