A classic Peanuts Christmas countdown on for 2022

Christmas is coming, and so is's tradition of counting down to the Big Day with the Peanuts gang. Starting Friday, November 25 and continuing every day through December 25, our home page will feature a different, seasonally themed single panel.

As long-time readers will know, new Christmas countdown panels are no longer being made, but once again we have reached into our recently expanded archives to bring you panels from 1988, unseen (as far as we know) since their original run over 30 years ago.

(A couple of years ago, research efforts by co-host Derrick Bang uncovered 12 years of previously lost countdown panels... 1988 being one of them. You can read all about his hunt in his blog post.)

Unfortunately, the sources for these panels were not high quality and they 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 enjoy visiting our home page each day for the latest panel... and don't put off your holiday preparations until too late!
