Learning English with Charlie Brown

Charles Monroe Schulz was born in St. Paul, Minnesota, on this day in 1922. He died in 2000. Schulz created Charlie Brown, Lucy, Snoopy, and the rest of the Peanuts Gang.

Back in the early days of “el exilio,” we learned English going to school, playing baseball with our new friends, and watching TV. I don’t want to show my age, but TV circa 1970 was “mucho mejor” than what we have today. Back then, we had 3 or 4 channels and something worth watching. Today, we have 300 channels and “mucha basura” as my late mother used to say.

We loved Mr. Schulz’ characters so much that we watched them on TV and holiday specials. What would Thanksgiving be without Charlie and the gang planning their celebration? What would a Christmas’ playlist be like without A Snoopy’ Christmas?

Happy San Giving and catch Snoopy this weekend.
