Thanksgiving with the Peanuts gang is happier than ever when Peppermint Patty joins the group for a festive celebration.
December brings Christmas and A Charlie Brown Christmas, which was produced in 1965 and has stood the test of time. Now, when people see a scraggly little tree, they often refer to it as a “Charlie Brown tree.” That’s because Good Ol’ Charlie Brown picked out the mangiest little tree to give it a good home. He doesn’t want to be taken in by the materialism of the holidays. And in the end he proves that the Christmas spirit and the season isn’t dependent on the big commercialism that has taken over the world.
Besides these three main holiday shows, the collection includes plenty more fun with Charlie Brown, Lucy, Linus, Sally, Snoopy, Peppermint Patty, Violet, Schroeder, Patty, Frieda, Pig Pen, Woodstock, Franklin, and the rest of the gang.
