In my house, the viewing of Charlie Brown Thanksgiving is a tradition every year on Thanksgiving day.

When time permits (which it usually does, as my husband and children are such devotees of this tradition) we even do our own recreation of the final scene, where, instead of the traditional fare of turkey and mashed potatoes, they have toast, jelly beans, popcorn, and ice cream, because they weren’t on top of things enough to prepare a proper dinner. Shopping for these items a few days before Thanksgiving is also a tradition the girls look forward to.

We usually do this Charlie Brown Thanksgiving routine in the late morning before we go off to our regularly scheduled Thanksgiving festivities. We also go around the table and say what we are thankful for.

Here’s a clip from Charlie Brown Thanksgiving:

You can watch the whole thing for free on Hulu.
