Google just knows how to do it right! In celebration of Thanksgiving, Google updates their logo to reflect not only the holiday but adds an extra bonus with a shoutout to Charles Schulz whose birthday is also today!

And for a Charlie Browniac like myself that just makes my day!

(November 26) Today we're celebrating . . .  The Birthday of Charles Schulz

11262-006cb.jpgCharles Schulz (cartoonist-Peanuts)
One of America’s most influential cartoonists, the late Charles Schulz is most famous for his comic strip “Peanuts” and its beloved characters including Charlie Brown, Linus, Lucy, Pig Pen and of course Snoopy.

Along with the comic strip Schulz also created 2 of the best television holiday specials ever – “A Charlie Brown Christmas ” and “It’s the Great Pumpkin Charlie Brown”.

Today is a special day for us “Charlie Browniacs” and join us as we celebrate with a little music, specifically what has become the signature tune of the Peanuts TV specials – “Linus and Lucy.” Here is a nice interpretation of the tune by the group The Divine Comedy. Enjoy.
