    It’s almost Valentine’s Day and we are all trying to figure out creative and romantic ways to demonstrate to our sweethearts how much we love them.  Not to mention looking forward to all the chocolate treats that we also get to indulge in just because it’s a special holiday.  Many of you probably don’t know that, over the years, Charles Schulz created dozens of Valentine’s Day-themed Peanuts 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 longingly as Snoopy sits on top of his doghouse reading his stacks of valentines—while his own mailbox remains embarrassingly 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 whom he dated and proposed to only to be turned down.  This ultimately broke his heart despite the fact that they remained friends their whole lives.

    Most recently, the Little Red-Haired Girl made her big screen debut in the new The Peanuts Movie in November 2015. The film marks the first time the character, voiced by Francesca Capaldi of Disney’s “Dog with a Blog,” speaks.  

    Another fun Valentine’s Day Peanuts fact is that there are two primetime TV specials devoted to this day of love.  The first one, Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown, is the 13th special based upon the popular comic strip.  In this special, the whole gang experiences holiday heartbreak.  The second TV special, A Charlie Brown Valentine, is the 40th special.  In this special, Charlie Brown attempts to win the heart of the Little Red-Haired Girl.

  21. Robin (Masshole Mommy) says

    Honestly, we don’t celebrate Valentine’s Day. The kids exchange valentines in school, but that’s the extent of it.

  22. I love Snoopy and the Peanut’s gang! All of these Valentine’s gifts are so cute and they would be perfect for my kiddos!

  23. I go out to dinner with my Hubby and kids. I like to get my kids little gifts like some small chocolates. I also send my Mom a card.

  29. I like to go out for dinner with my husband. I also give him a nice card. Spending time together is always nice.

  30. Cards are good, but I like live plants better than roses or cut flowers…..

  31. I love the entire Peanuts gang–but my heart belongs to Snoopy! No one to celebrate Valentine’s Day with who will shower me with chocolate–so I will take my Mom out for a lovely lunch/dinner and probably get her some flowers delivered to her door.

  32. My hubby gets us ladies flowers and we do cards and lots of kisses!

    I love to plan a special day devoted to them. I would make their favorite meal and their favorite dessert. We would either go out and watch a movie or do something fun or just stay home and cuddle. I love to plan surprises so I would probably do that as well.

  38. Ah Peanuts! Such fond memories brought back from Childhood. I adored Peanuts everything.

    I’m not sure what we’ll be doing this Valentine’s. My husband works so I can’t imagine it will be much. I know we are doing a family dinner and movie night though!

  39. I show my love and affection by just being there with him the whole day. It is a time for pampering with attention and affection. No gifts, just us celebrating together.

  41. These are such great ideas. I love Peanuts.

  42. Aw what a cute snoopy my kids would love some of those treats for Vday! Great giveaway !

  43. That’s a very cute cartoon strip in this article. It reminds me of the R&B band Rose Royce from way back in the day, with their awesome song, “I Wanna Get Next To You.”

  44. Brenda Haines says

    NO sweetheart here, so I will just spoil my son instead lol. He has his first School Valentine party this coming week and I may be more excited than he is!

  45. I love Peanuts, it has always been one of my favorite comics since I was a kid. Looks like a really great bunch of goodies for Valentine’s Day!

  46. Valentine’s Day is hard in my house… My husband buys what he wants so shopping for him is a pain, which means I have to really get creative. This year, I’m surprising him with some really fun things since we live in Europe, so that helps. 🙂 The kids just like the candy. LOL. My birthday falls near V-Day so I don’t as for much as I’d rather celebrate my birthday. LOL

    I always liked doing Valentine’s day stuff with my son. But now hes 21 and I am lonely. The man I am interested in has 2 babies and I hope and pray someday I can do Valentine activities with them. As far as for love….I dunno I’m not used to Valentine’s day, I’m baking heart shaped cupcakes today to take to my crush tomorrow.

  51. Leigh Anne Borders says

    I got one of those Gnoments things to use with my love. We have been doing things for each other for the past seven days to lead up to Valentine’s Day.

  52. We try to do something together on Valentine’s. We usually try to cook dinner together and just spend time together.

  53. Oh I love doing little simple things! Love hiding little things around the house or in the car…or lunchbox. Just something little to let them know you are thinking about them and appreciate them!
