Valentine’s Day is next week. And no I haven’t even tried to make anything Pinteresty for the kids’ classrooms. Spoiler Alert: I’m also not planning on it. What I am planning on is watching my favorite shows and eating candy. Sounds good to you too? Then you need to set your DVR for these must watch Valentine’s Day shows on ABC.

Thinking that the candy is for her, Sally reciprocates with a homemade card for Linus. Lucy meanwhile, demands some affection from Schroeder, and Charlie Brown waits for his cards in the mail… and waits… and waits…
Then in A Charlie Brown Valentine, Charlie Brown finally works up the courage to call the little red-haired girl to ask her to the Valentine’s Day dance. But once again he ends up broken-hearted and empty-handed when he dials the wrong number and reaches Peppermint Patty instead.
