They know it is a little early for Christmas, but; Snapchat has a present for you. The Edward Scissorhands lens in now available, and the best season of them all is now here.

Twentieth Century Fox Home Entertainment teamed up with Snapchat to create a lens in honor of the film’s 26th anniversary. Raise your eyebrows to get that fancy scissorhands work on and shave up a snowstorm.

But, HALT. Edward Scissorhands came out 26 years ago?!!!

Yes, it was December 14, 1990 that the Tim Burton film Edward Scissorhands entered theatres.

The first collaboration of Burton and Johnny Depp, Edward Scissorhands became an instant Christmas classic.

Since then, Burton and Depp have worked together on Ed Wood, Sweeney Todd, Dark Shadows, Alice in Wonderland, The Corpse Bride, and Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

Written by Caroline Thompson, the story of Edward Scissorhands was inspired by a high school drawing Burton made of a boy who had scissors instead of hands.

Thompson based the character of Edward, however, on her dog.

“The character was based on a dog that I had who was so ridiculously present that if she had had the physiological ability I swear she could have talked,” Thompson told The Huffington Post. “And if you examine Edward, that’s what he’s like. He’s this dog that’s like, ‘What do you need? Here I am.’”

No matter what, Edward will always be special.
