Do you ever feel like Charlie Brown and want to scream, “Doesn’t anyone know what Christmas is all about?”
I have always loved the Charlie Brown Christmas special, even before I came to know the Lord. There has always been something about the purity of the message that resonated with me. To this day, this is my favorite Christmas Special. When Linus gives his speech, I still get chills.
“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.”
“…That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.”
Charles Schultz had the courage to keep Christ in Christmas; we can all learn from him. I know it is a cheesy saying but, Jesus IS the reason for the season!
