“Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about, pleaded Charlie Brown.
“Sure, Charlie Brown”, said Linus. “I can tell you what Christmas is all about”.
With everyone watching him, Linus takes center stage and says,”Lights please.”
“And there were in the same country, shepherds abiding in the field, 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 sore afraid.”
And the angel said unto them, “Fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day, in the City of David, a Savior, ‘tis Christ the Lord.”
“And this shall be a sign unto you. You shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.”
And suddenly, there was with the angel, a multitude of heavenly hosts praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.”
Then Linus, leaving center stage to make his way back to Charlie Brown side, says, “That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”
