Now that we’ve made it past mid-October, it’s safe to say the holiday season is in full swing. Halloween will be here in just over a week, then Thanksgiving, and before we know it, Christmas! As much as I’m ready to spring ahead to the Christmas season (it’s the best!), there are so many exciting things happening now.
First up, this year marks 65th anniversary of Peanuts! It’s just amazing to me how long Snoopy + the crew have been around and how loved they still are. I’m giving away an awesome (brand new) book in honor of the big anniversary (enter at the bottom of the post), filled lots of fun Peanuts memories throughout the years.
Second, party things! Oriental Trading has a whole section of awesome products dedicated to Peanuts. Whether you’re a real kid or a kid-at-heart, there are so many fun Halloween and Thanksgiving goodies for a fall fiesta!
Speaking of fall activities, you can catch the Peanuts crew at select pumpkin patches in the U.S., as well as picking up some stickers, and a fun pumpkin stencil. The Snoopy pumpkin is the cutest!And last but not least, The Peanuts Movie! It’ll be out in just over 2 weeks! My sisters are so pumped to see it and I can’t wait to take them!
In preparation for it (and to get in the fall spirit if you’re not already), you can also catch It’s the Great Pumpkin, Charlie Brown, tonight at 8 p.m. EST on ABC! Will you be watching?
To celebrate all of these exciting things, I’m giving away CELEBRATING PEANUTS: 65 YEARS (RV $45), a brand new timeless book filled with some of the best Peanuts strips over the decades, from Andrews McMeel publishing.
On October 2, 1950, a small phenomenon was launched in just seven newspapers: It was the birth of Charles Schulz’s comic strip, “Peanuts.” Now, 65 years later, we can’t even imagine a world without Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, Schroeder and the gang. So celebrate with me, 65 years of Lucy pulling the football out from under Charlie Brown…Lucy tormenting Schroeder with her love…Linus and his security blanket…and Snoopy and his innumerable personas!
Good luck—and good grief, Charlie Brown!
