There’s not a lot I remember about my paternal grandmother, but the one thing that stands out in my memory is that she loved Snoopy and the Peanuts gang. When I would visit her as a small child she always asked me if I knew what Snoopy, Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Peppermint Patty and the rest of the gang were up to in the comic pages. It was our own special conversation…
I can also vividly remember her dining room cabinet which was adorn with her collection of Peanuts memorabilia which included mugs, glasses, dolls, ceramic figures, books, cookie jars and even an adorable “The Doctor Is in” Lucy/Charlie Brown statue.
I think it’s because of my grandma that Snoopy and the gang have always had a soft spot in my heart.
And Hallmark is celebrating the release of The Peanuts Movie with a new Keepsake Ornament and a movie sweepstakes.
