The seasons are changing, and when better to start celebrating the holidays? MeTV will be doing that starting in November, and TV Insider can exclusively reveal all the plans, including a celebration of Charles Schulz’s 100th birthday.

America’s #1 classic television network presents its annual “A Very Merry MeTV” programming celebration of hand-picked Thanksgiving and holiday-themed episode from your favorite T shows of yesterday, as well as TV movies, holiday specials, and more. It all begins on Sunday, November 20 at 12/11c and continues through Christmas Day.

There will be Thanksgiving and Christmas-themed marathons of festive episodes, on November 20 and 27. To celebrate Schulz’s birthday on November 26, the holiday marathons will culminate in the MeTV debut of beloved Peanuts animated classics: 1969’s A Boy Named Charlie Brown on Sunday, November 20 at 8/7c and 1972’s Snoopy Come Home on Sunday, November 27 at 8/7c. Both are rarely presented on broadcast television, and this year are the only Peanuts Holiday specials on broadcast TV.
