My siblings and I have been watching the same Christmas specials since we were little. Relaxing with a cup of hot chocolate in front of the TV as a family and watching these classics is still one of my favorite holiday traditions, although as an adult even I am skeptical of things that kids take for granted, like how much the red light of a reindeer’s nose could lead Santa through a snowstorm. (Who came up with that, anyway?) Still, it doesn’t feel like Christmas until I’ve watched a few of specials with some hot chocolate. Here are my five favorites:
1. A Charlie Brown Christmas
First aired: 1965
Memorable quote: Charlie Brown, you’re the only person I know who can take a wonderful season like Christmas and turn it into a problem!
Favorite moment: When Linus tells us what Christmas is all about.
Disappointing realization as an adult: Waving your arms in front of a skinny tree does not make it grow branches.
