Top Ten Movies for Halloween

Click to see our Entire Halloween Collection

Peanuts: It's The Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown

Charlie Brown gets rocks in his trick-or-treat bag, Linus awaits a visitation from the Great Pumpkin in his terribly sincere pumpkin patch (while the adoring little Sally sits tight with him), Snoopy falls asleep, Lucy harasses Schroeder, and Pig-Pen kicks up a dust storm even beneath his costume in this classic television broadcast. Funny stuff, but also graced with Charles Schultz's more poignant and gently satiric themes from the 1960s on the influence of faith, failure, and hope in our lives.

Halloween is known as the holiday of witches, jack o' lanterns and trick-or-treating, but its history is much more complex. This program explores several folk traditions from Costa Rica, Mexico and Ireland to explain the origin of traditional Halloween symbols, costumes, the custom of trick-or-treating and why Halloween is a time to celebrate and honor the memory of loved ones past. The importance of Halloween safety is also discussed. Children learn how to create a papier-mache mask, and Irish folk singers perform to make this program an exciting, informative adventure. Part of the multivolume Holidays for Children DVD Series. A teacher's guide is included and is available online.
