Just the Facts Charlie Brown: 50 Facts for the 50th Anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas

The Half Price Blog

This year marks the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas. To mark the occasion, here are 50 factoids, tidbits, quotes or observations about the little holiday special that only a blockhead could dislike.

1. Charles M. Schulz’s Peanuts comic strip began in 1950 and by the early 60s was a full-blown phenomenon. The 1962 book Happiness is a Warm Puppy was a New York Times bestseller, and Time magazine featured Schulz’s characters on its April 9, 1965 cover.

2. In 1963, producer Lee Mendelson started work on a TV documentary about Schulz and Peanuts. The film included brief animated scenes created by Bill Melendez and original music by jazz pianist Vince Guaraldi. All the networks passed on it.

Chocolate Stout Cake

Lilly Sue's Bites and Brews

This chocolaty, perfectly moist, decadent stout cake does anything but disappoint. Cake is not usually my number one dessert choice but this recipe makes me feel differently. It was surprisingly not too rich which made each bite easier than the last 😀

The first cake was made for a party and it was apparently completely devoured. Though I did not have an actual piece, I had scraped off parts of the cake from the pan and knew the texture of the cake was spot on. Of course, a devoured cake is hard to take pictures of so I HAD to make this cake again 🙂

A double chocolate sauce combination also sounded delicious. The combination of the two sauces and the addition of beer in the regular chocolate sauce, made a perfect marriage of flavors. The sauces were light and not overwhelmingly sweet at all.
