Celebrate Valentine’s day with some Peanuts style! Win a great Peanuts prize pack!

Love is in the air and it is almost time for Valentine’s Day, a day to spread love all over! One way I will be spreading the love  this year is sharing a bunch of fun giveaway’s and great facts and info about the beloved Peanuts characters as a Peanuts Ambassador for 2016. I am privileged and honored to be invited back to be a Peanuts Ambassador for 2016, it is going to be a great year!  


Everyone knows the classic Peanuts Christmas special, but did you know there is a special for many holidays? One of my favorite specials is the Valentine’s Day special, In this special, Charlie Brown attempts to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl.  After numerous failed efforts, he finally works up the courage to call her to ask her to the Valentine's Day dance. But he dials the wrong number and reaches Peppermint Patty instead. It is a pretty funny special my whole family loves. 
Show your love to the special someone, with some Peanuts style! Every year, Charlie Brown, Snoopy and the rest of the Peanuts gang can be found on hundreds of different Valentine’s Day gifts, including cards, plush, books, candy and much more.  
This year, for the first time, Oriental Trading is offering an array of colorful Peanuts toys, party supplies, and crafts for Valentine’s Day.  Also new are adorable Peanuts Pez and a ready-to-read book, called Happy Valentine’s Day, Charlie Brown, from Simon and Schuster.  Returning by popular demand, are Whitman’s chocolates featuring a Snoopy plush, A Charlie Brown Valentine DVDs from Warner Home Entertainment, and holiday cards from Hallmark.


Over the years, Charles Schulz created dozens of Valentine’s Day-themed comic strips. The classic strips were always family favorites here are some fun facts about the comic strips you know and love: 
* 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.
There are two primetime TV specials devoted to Valentine’s Day. The first one, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, is the 13th special based upon the popular comic strip. It originally aired on CBS on January 28, 1975 and now airs every year on ABC, the second TV special, A Charlie Brown Valentine, is the 40th special.  It was initially broadcast on February 14, 2002 on ABC (where it continues to air now).
