Peanuts Valentine's Day

Peanuts Valentine's Day

Love is in the air – can you feel it! It’s time to get ready for Valentine’s Day and your own Sweet Babboo! This year Peanuts sent me a package filled with love and great new Peanuts Valentine’s day products. Inside we have everything from craft boxes, crayons, stickers, A Charlie Brown Valentine, an early reader book, chocolates and even PEZ! Besides being extremely adorable – the box instantly makes you feel loved!

Are you ready for Valentines and some sweet Valentine’s goodies? Here are some fun facts about Peanuts Comic Strips and Valentine’s Day:

  • Over the years, Charles Schulz created dozens of Valentine’s Day-themed comic strips.
  • Many of the strips revolve around Charlie Brown’s eagerness to receive valentines…only to be disappointed, every. single. time. In several of the strips, Charlie Brown watches forlornly as Snoopy sits atop his doghouse reading his stacks of valentines—while his own mailbox remains doggedly empty.

  • At other times, Charlie Brown’s stomach is in knots as he focuses on getting a valentine from the Little Red-Haired Girl or giving one to her, but he never quite manages to get up the nerve to approach her.

  • In real life, the Little Red-Haired Girl was a co-worker of Schulz’ named Donna Johnson Wold. Wold and Schulz eventually became romantically involved and dated for three years, but in 1950 when Schulz proposed to her, she turned him down, saying she was already engaged. Schulz was devastated, but he and Donna remained friends for the rest of his life.
  • Most recently, the Little Red-Haired Girl took center stage in the critically acclaimed The Peanuts Movie, which debuted in November 2015. The film marks the first time the character, voiced by Francesca Capaldi of Disney’s “Dog with a Blog,” speaks.
  • Other recurring stories of unrequited love include Lucy pestering Schroeder for a valentine and Sally pursuing Linus (in vain) by giving him a valentine.
  • Sally’s pet name for Linus, “Sweet Babboo,” was inspired by Schulz’ wife, Jeannie Schulz, who called her husband the same thing. Linus apparently feels differently about the pet name than Schulz did—almost every time Sally uses the term of endearment, Linus screams, “I’m not your Sweet Babboo!”

  1. Right now I don’t really have any plans for Valentines Day. I will probably take my son out to eat and bake some cookies.

  2. I will have just got out of the hospital from hip surgery on Valentine’s Day — so no big plans. I’m sure hubby will do something, though.

  3. Sally and her everlasting love for Linus! That girl never gives up and it makes the best Valentine’s comics. Thanks for the chance!

  4. My favorite is Whitman’s chocolates featuring a Snoopy plush. Candy and Snoopy, doesn’t get much better than that.

  5. I have a little Snoopy hot wheels car from the 70’s. Now my daughter plays with it; it’s so cute and I’ve never seen another one like it.
    No big plans for Valentine’s day; probably going out for dinner or a movie.

  6. Oh I am going to be staying home on Valentines day and watching my grandson so the kids can go out. We are going to play some games, and make cupcakes!

  7. I just saw the prettiest Peanuts canvas that has Snoopy and Charlie sitting on the dock staring at the stary night. I want it!!!

  8. The snoopy valentines day comic is one of my favorites! he’s always been my favorite character xo. for valentines day I want to surprise my family with something nice, have a candle lit dinner under the stars, and then have a board game or movie night!

  9. Peaking of that Peanuts canvas.. I GOT IT! Ships today and it will be perfect hanging in my son’s room! I shop at night lol

  10. I love the PEZ® Peanuts® Valentine Woodstock & Snoopy Dispensers for the holiday. I will probably fix a heart themed meal for my family for Valentine’s Day.

  11. I had a beagle when I was 10 and he was just as loyal as Snoopy, he passed away when he was 14. He was my best friend, everyone should have a loving pet in their lives.

  12. We are going to stay home for Valentine’s Day. I am going to make a heart shaped red cake and a nice dinner for the family.

  13. I love any kind of chocolate. No def plans right now. I know I have to work, but sure we will go out to dinner

  14. My favorite character is Lucy. When i was little, I dressed as Lucy for Halloween. My Valentine’s plans are to relax and watch movies and bake before i have to go in to work. We actually celebrated more today, and we went fishing.

  15. I love both the Peanuts cartoons and the comic strips. For Valentine’s Day, I usually give small gifts or candy to my kids. I do like to do something to make them feel special.
