Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!
Charlie Brown: [shouting in desperation] Isn't there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?
Linus Van Pelt: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you. Lights, please. [a spotlight shines on Linus]
Linus Van Pelt: "And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the lord shone round about them, and they were so afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you this day is born in the City of Bethlehem, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men'". That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie brown.
*Quotes from www.imdb.com*
Yes, I waited until almost the last day possible to mention this one. This is a reminder that Christmas isn't about Santa Claus, or presents, or reindeer, or any of the commercial stuff.
Christmas is about the celebration of the day that God gave the world the gift of his son.
MAY YOUR COCOA BE WARM AND FULL OF MARSHMALLOWS
MAY YOU HAVE LOW INTEREST RATES ON THOSE GIFTS YOU CHARGED
MAY THERE BE NO ARGUMENTS OVER THE GRAVY
MAY THERE BE, IF NOT PEACE ON EARTH, AT LEAST PEACE IN YOUR HOME
