** Now that we know more about depression, and, in particular, how it can get worse around the holiday season, Charlie Brown's state of mind at the start of the special is more poignant than ever. Especially now that more people are aware that it's not so uncommon -- a ''lot'' of people can probably relate to what Charlie Brown's going through.

** Getting an artificial tree for the holidays is presented as just another example of tacky commercialism at work. These days, people are more likely to use artificial trees because they'd rather not ''kill'' a defenseless tree every year just to have something to decorate their living room for a couple of weeks.

These days, eco-conscious people are more likely to use artificial trees because they'd rather not ''kill'' a defenseless tree every year year, or support the operations that grow and harvest them en masse, just to have something to decorate so it can shed needles all over their living room for a couple of weeks.

* MemeticMutation: In [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0G8XH4WDxP4 the dance sequence]], see that kid in the orange shirt with spiky hair in front of Linus? That's "5". Given that he wasn't very notable even in the comic strip, most people know him just for that dance he's doing. You know the one. Taken mainstream when the cast of ''Series/{{Scrubs}}'' made a GagDub of the special.

* FirstInstallmentWins: This special still reigns as by far the most popular ''Peanuts'' special, to the point some aren't aware how many there are outside this and It's the Great Pumpkin. (there's dozens).

* TheyChangedItNowItSucks: The soundtrack by Vince Guaraldi Trio. In 2006, the album was reissued with slightly extended cuts of "O Tannenbaum", "Christmas Time Is Here (instrumental)" and "Skating"; and both "Linus and Lucy" and "Christmas Is Coming" were replaced with slightly different alternate takes that were actually used in the animated special (though record label Concord did decide the inclusion of the lattermost was an actual mistake.) Concord offered to replace the album at no cost, and reverted back to the original version of the album shortly thereafter.
