A Charlie Brown Christmas

A Charlie Brown Christmas is a 1965 animated television special. It is the first TV special based on the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. Produced by Lee Mendelson and directed by Bill Melendez, the program made its debut on CBS on December 9, 1965. In the special, Charlie Brown finds himself depressed despite the onset of the cheerful holiday season. Lucy suggests he direct a neighborhood Christmas play, but his best efforts are ignored and mocked by his peers when he chooses a real, but puny, Christmas tree as a centerpiece. After Linus speaks of the true meaning of Christmas, the neighborhood decorates the tree as a Christmas gift to Charlie Brown. - Source

My Thoughts

I will be the first to admit that I disovered what this wonderful short film represented late in life. I was pretty much blinded by the whole commercialization of Christmas, I'm embarrassed but at least I admit it. Like you and many others growing up it was all about what was under the Christmas tree. This short film speaks volumes, because although Charlie is a child, he still felt unfullfilled by the whole commercialization of Christmas. With the help of Linus, another child, he explains whath the true meaning is of Christmas. Everytime I watch it, I feel like I could cry. I feel it in my heart. So many people have forgotten what Christmas is truly all about. We must never forget the true meaning of Christmas, the night our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ was born. I hope every year you can share this short film with your family especially your children, so that they grow up knowning that it isn't just what is under the Christmas tree that matters, but whose around it, and how Christmas came to be.
