Click on the calendar page, it will open in a new tab, print it out and then color it and fill in the days that you want to celebrate… pop it on the fridge and you are good to go. You can still find all the calendar pages down the right hand side of our website and they are all gathered together in our Almanac page for easy searching… If you have holidays or ideas that you would like to add then please go ahead and comment, I would love to have our calendars packed to the brim!!!

    The official Peanuts website is http://WWW.peanuts.com.

    And for Grouch day, I think something Oscar the Grouch (from Sesame Street) might be appropriate.
