Be My Valentine, Charlie Brown

The day of hearts and flowers gets complicated for the Peanuts crew: Lucy wants affection from a less-than-affectionate Schroeder; Sally assumes that Linus’s box of candy is meant for her (it wasn’t); and Charlie Brown waits by the mailbox for his Valentine’s Day cards…and waits…and waits…
