It's Christmas Time - I Guess
Well, today was supposed to be the day we put the tree up. It still may be, but the Mrs is still recovering from the flu and I haven’t been in the holiday spirit as of yet. So, to help kick things off, I thought I would share a quick documentary below about the making of one of my favorite Christmas shows, Charlie Brown Christmas, to help stir up the festive spirit.
Growing up, I thought of myself as a Charlie Brown. It seemed like nearly everything I did, turned into a mess. I was the neighborhood comic and felt lonely often. My older sister was somewhat like Lucy at the time, my uncle was the piano player, and I even had a beagle named Snoopy at one point (two beagles in fact).
The message of God’s peace, family, and the meaning of Christmas resonated every year the special would come on. Back in those days, it was an event to watch the show because it kicked off the season and we knew the presents were right around the corner. The show having snow also reminded me of growing up in Michigan where we always had snow and Christmas just seemed more like, Christmas.
So, tonight, here’s to you Charlie Brown, and Charles Shultz, for being a special part of our lives, and for still being a part. I'm looking forward to sharing this year's Christmas season with you and sharing more great Christmas memories together ..
