Bright orange button with black text on a sign that the illustration of Schroeder, a Peanuts character, is holding.
Schroeder is one of the beloved characters in the Peanuts comic strip created by Charles Schultz. The character idolizes the classical composer Beethoven. He is the only one of the Peanuts clan that celebrates Beethoven’s birthday, which is on December 16th. Starting in 1953, and in almost every year after that, Schroeder acknowledges Beethoven’s birthday in some form. The most commonly found reference shows Schroeder holding up signs depicting how many days it is until Beethoven’s birthday.
