We all have our favorite holiday specials. For me I love, A Charlie Brown Christmas. More specifically I love when Charlie Brown shouts, "Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?" and Linus replies, "Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about." Linus walks to middle stage and the spotlight shines on him and he reminds us all what Christmas is really about.
"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock 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 sore 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 is born this day in the City of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, 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."
A Charlie Brown Christmas (The Meaning of Christmas)
And so this Christmas and everyday of the year I wish to you all good tidings of great joy and peace and good will.
