This happy fellow has always reminded me of Ichabod Crane, in Washington Irving’s 1820 story, “The Legend Of Sleepy Hollow”.
For those who are unfamiliar with the Hudson Valley, New York legend, it tells of the superstitious schoolmaster encountering a headless horseman while riding home one evening from a party. The horseman is said to have been the ghost of a Hessian soldier whose head had been blown off by a cannonball during the Revolutionary War.
The spectre would roam the countryside looking for his head. In its place – he wore a pumpkin head. The headless horseman chased Ichabod through the woods, where it caught up to him on a bridge. Ichabod was never seen again. A smashed pumpkin marked the spot where he vanished.
The Legend of Sleepy Hollow is the perfect spooky read on a crisp, windy, candle-lit Halloween night.
