A classic Peanuts Christmas countdown on FiveCentsPlease.org for 2021

Ho ho ho!  FiveCentsPlease.org's annual tradition of counting down the days to Christmas with the Peanuts gang returns on Friday, November 26.

Our home page will feature a different seasonally themed comic each day through December 25.

Alas, new Christmas countdown panels are no longer being made, but once again we have reached into our expanded archives to bring you the 1993 panels, unseen (as far as we know) since their original run nearly 30 years ago.

(Research efforts last year by FiveCentsPlease.org co-host Derrick Bang uncovered 12 years of previously lost countdown panels... 1993 being one of them. You can read all about his hunt in his blog post.)

Unfortunately, the sources for these panels weren't high quality and required a fair bit of cleanup, so they aren't as crisp or detailed as the panels from the late 1990's and 2000's.

But we hope you'll still find them as charming as we do, and visit our home page each day to enjoy these panels as the holiday approaches!
