Happy Valentine’s Day, From The Peanuts Gang! Win A Peanuts Valentines Prize Pack #PeanutsValentine
Valentine’s Day is right around the corner – and nothing says Valentine’s Day like chocolate, cards, and of course Snoopy and the Peanuts Gang. We are huge Peanuts fans over here, so nine times out of ten every Valentine’s Day gift that passes through our house is Snoopy or Charlie Brown themed – it’s basically a family tradition.
When February 14th comes around every year, love is in the air, and so is nostalgia – for some reason whenever I think of Valentine’s Day, I think of getting those little cards in school from my classmates with pictures of Charlie Brown, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts gang on them. And of course, the Charlie Brown specials that used to air on television. The original special, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, began airing on CBS in 1975. In 2002, they rolled out a new holiday special based on the original called, A Charlie Brown Valentine. ABC will air the classic “A Charlie Brown Valentine,” FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 12 (8:00-9:00 p.m. EST).
Charles Schulz wrote many adorable Charlie Brown comic strips with Valentine’s Day themes. Who could possibly forget about Charlie Brown’s decade long pursuit of the beautiful Little Red-Haired Girl. What a lot of Peanuts fans don’t realize is that the Red-Haired Girl was actually based on Charles Schulz real-life crush, a woman that he worked with named Donna Johnson Wold. Charles and Donna dated for three years – but when he got down on one knee and proposed to the love of his life in 1950 she revealed that she was already engaged to marry someone else.
There are SO many Peanuts themed Valentine’s Day gifts out there to choose from – I highly recommend checking out the collection at Oriental Trading, especially if you have little ones that are having a Valentine’s Day party at school or you want to throw one of your own. Oriental Trade offers Peanuts Valentine’s Day cards, decorations, plush toys, candies, stickers, crafts, and so much more!
I always get my nephew a little gift for Valentine’s Day, and this year I picked him up a copy of Happy Valentine’s Day, Charlie Brown, from Simon and Schuster. It really is the perfect gift for any kids on your Valentine’s Day shopping list – or possibly even an adult that has a love for the timeless comic strip. Whitman’s chocolate also has a special collection that includes their iconic chocolates and A Peanuts plush – which also makes for an adorable gift for one of your loved ones. Or, if you are looking for a gift that is a bit more sentimental – Hallmark is teaming up with Peanuts and has their very own line of Charlie Brown themed holiday cards.
