Did you know that the 2nd of October 2014 marks the 64th birthday of Peanuts? On this day in 1950 Peanuts was published for the very first time in seven newspapers. Like a lot of people, I have a tremendous soft spot for Peanuts. Reading the books that were given to me for birthdays and as Christmas presents was an absolute treat. I couldn't definitely tell you who my favourite character was or is, but it might be Snoopy.
