A Charlie Brown Christmas

(Rochester, NY) – The holiday classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas, will air on WXXI-TV and WXXI-Kids 24/7 on Sunday, December 13, 2020 at 7:30 p.m. When Charlie Brown complains about the overwhelming materialism that he sees amongst everyone during the Christmas season, Lucy suggests that he become director of the school Christmas pageant. Charlie Brown accepts, but is a frustrating struggle. When an attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir Christmas tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to learn the meaning of Christmas.

PLEASE NOTE: A Charlie Brown Christmas will not be available to watch on the PBS KIDS 24/7 livestream, pbskids.org, or PBS KIDS Video App.
