For many generations the holidays have always been a time where families gather round, sit down in front of the television and watch a Peanuts special.
Peppermint Patty gets herself invited over to Charlie Brown’s house for Thanksgiving dinner then Franklin and Marcie also are invited. Charlie tells them that his cooking skills tend towards cereal and toast. Snoopy and Woodstock pitch in turning the backyard ping pong table into the dinner table.
When the guests come they are served pretzels, popcorn, jelly beans and two sliced of toast with butter. Peppermint Patty is angry that this is what she is being served for Thanksgiving dinner and her outburst totally embarrasses Charlie Brown. He is so upset that he leaves the dinner table and goes inside the house.
