After a busy weekend, I was looking for a light way to ease into the week. Lo and behold, I discovered that today is the birthday of cartoonist Charles Schulz, who was born in 1922 in Minneapolis, Minnesota.
Schulz delighted readers young and old with his Peanuts comic strip, which first appeared in national newspapers in 1950. Over the years, its syndication grew to include many more national and international outlets. As its popularity increased, books, TV specials, movies, and even a Broadway play based on Peanuts characters, were produced.
No doubt, a TV special or two will re-air during this holiday season. Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Lucy, Linus, and company always make me nostalgic and reawaken the kid in me.
Have a great week!
