A classic Peanuts Christmas countdown on for 2023

Are you counting down the days until Christmas? and the Peanuts gang are - our annual tradition of publishing classic Peanuts Christmas countdown panels is back, this year featuring panels from 1989.

Starting Friday, November 24, and continuing through December 25, our home page will feature a different holiday-themed comic each day.

New Christmas countdown panels are no longer being made, but we've reached into the archives to bring you historical panels that haven't been republished (as far as we know) since their original run over 30 years ago.

(A few years ago, co-host Derrick Bang uncovered 12 years of previously lost countdown panels... 1989 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 don't look as crisp as ones from later years.)

Please join us on our home page for a new comic each day, and we hope the Christmas countdown panels prompt a little smile every 24 hours, as they do for us!
