Isn’t There Anyone Who Knows What Christmas Is About?

See what netizens have to say about A Charlie Brown Christmas doing its re-run on ABC.

Trending on Twitter in the US on Thursday night was #CharlieBrownChristmas with approximately 8000 tweets at the time of writing, thanks to the rerun of A Charlie Brown Christmas for the 52nd year. The 25-minute long animated television special originally aired on the 9th of December 1965 and was so well-received that it has aired during the Christmas season every year since. According to TV Guide, A Charlie Brown Christmas is the second longest running Christmas special after Rudolph, the Red-Nosed Reindeer.

Let’s see what netizens have had to say about this year’s re-run.

Scenes from the Show

Many individuals posted gif images or videos that they felt were the most memorable.

While others expressed their pleasure at getting to watch the show again, saying that it was a childhood tradition or that they did not feel like the Christmas season had truly begun until they had watched A Charlie Brown Christmas.

As the special itself makes reference to religion, suggesting that Christmas is truly about the celebration of Christ’s birth rather than the commercial overtones it has taken on over the years, some people have used the opportunity to highlight their religious beliefs.

Make-shift Props

Some individuals have also uploaded photographs of themselves with make-shift props related to the show. Most popular, of course, is the replica of Charlie Brown’s Christmas sapling.
