** Not to mention the opening title sequence, which shows the kids in their costumes running around, clearly terrified, from Halloween monsters like skeletons, witches, and big black cats. They eventually hide in a pumpkin patch, but it ends with an OminousOwl flying at the screen. The whole thing is a DisneyAcidSequence and BigLippedAlligatorMoment, to boot.

** If you ''really'' run with DeathOfTheAuthor, it works in reverse as well, as a criticism of religion. Linus makes a fool of himself in front of his more rational friends, misses out on the fun of trick-or-treating and the party, convinces Sally to do the same against her better judgement, suffers in the cold and is rewarded with nothing. And yet after all that, he refuses to accept how wrong he is about the Great Pumpkin, even in the face of the overwhelming evidence, and if anything, continues to believe even more strongly.

* HopeSpot: Some of the candy which Lucy collected for Linus might have ended up as Sally's recompensation for wasting Halloween in the pumpkin patch, if she decided to follow through on her threat...

* FridgeBrilliance: Charlie Brown getting an invitation to Violet's party wasn't a mistake. Most likely, her parents found out about the "do-not-invite" list, and made her invite everyone on that list because they viewed the list as a form of bullying.
