Linus, Charlie Brown and Christmas.

Poor Charlie Brown!

You may remember the scene from A Charlie Brown Christmas. Charlie Brown is depressed and discouraged by the over-commercialization of Christmas. He struggles to understand its true meaning. Enter Linus.

Rather than me telling the story, let’s hear it directly from Linus.

A Charlie Brown Christmas debuted on December 9, 1965 — 51 years ago! But the message is still timeless. What a wonderful reminder of the true meaning of this season of peace, joy and hope.

May you and your family have a Merry Christmas and a blessed New Year!
