Linus Van Pelt and Sally Brown
According to the comic strip, Charlie Brown’s sister, Sally was born on May 26, 1959 where Charlie marked the occasion by passing out chocolate cigars to his friends. She grew up quickly. She took her first steps on August 22, 1960 and she fell in love with Linus, Lucy’s brother, on the next day. It was love at first sight, at least on her part.

This Day in Pop Culture for February 6


'Of Mice and Men' was Published
Both the novella and the stage play of John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men were published during the same year, but it was the Novella that was published for the first time on this day in 1937. In 1939, Steinbeck won the Pulitzer Prize for The Grapes of Wrath and it is said that his work became more sentimental with the following works of Cannery Row and The Pearl. In the 1940’s he tried his hand writing movie scripts with good success for Forgotten Village (1941) and Viva Zapata (1952). However, even that wasn’t enough for this guy. In 1962, he wrote Travels with Charlie, a non-fiction book which chronicled his travels across the states with Charlie – his poodle and he won the Nobel Prize. He died in 1968.
