Does this photo bring back memories of watching A Charlie Brown Christmas? It does for me! I love those old shows and I always watch them during the Christmas season. That tree always makes me smile when I see it because it’s such a good reminder to keep Christmas simple and not fraught with commercialism.
“8And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.
10And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord.
12And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.”
Linus then walks over to Charlie Brown and says, “That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”
When I was looking for a photo for the post today, I found it here along with some fun facts about the movie! Don’t forget to sing along at the end,
