A Charlie Brown Christmas by Charles M. SchulzIts my favorite Christmas movie ever, so, of course, this must be one of my favorite Christmas stories to read as well. Its the story of a little boy (surely you know this) who doesnt quite feel the Christmas spirit and who doesnt do anything right, but is, nevertheless, put in charge of the Christmas pageant. In the midst of all the hustle and bustle of Christmas, the wanting of presents and the buying of things and the decorating, the true spirit of Christmas pops up, for just a minute, but it is enough to change everything.
7 Questions We Still Have About the Charlie Brown Christmas Special
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 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 Saviour, 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.

It's become a NewsBusters tradition to have the Peanuts character Linus explain the true meaning of Christmas. LINUS: 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 the heavenly hosts, praising God and saying, "Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Every Christmas, Charlie Brown gets sad and can't figure out why - he knows he should be pumped for Christmas like all the other kids, but he's depressed. Maybe it's the commercialism his theory. Maybe it's the fact that he's got no parents and is raising his little sister on his own and is completely bald my theory. Of course, this leads to all the kids treating Charlie Brown like garbage for daring to be clinically depressed. Lucy, Violet, and even Linus give Charlie Brown endless hassling for not feeling great. Lay off, you little assholes, he's like 8 years old and is still having to deal with nearly getting strangled by his dog. And Linus, his best friend in the world and the person he trusts above all others, goes and delivers a freakin' sermon.
