what is christmas about?

This is a repost of last years Christmas post, with the addition of the actual video, instead of just the text. I couldn't say it well last year, or any better this year.

Charlie Brown: [shouting in desperation] Isn't there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?

Linus: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you. Lights, please.

[a spotlight shines on Linus]

"And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, 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 so afraid.
And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.

For unto you this day is born in the City of Bethlehem, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, 'Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men'".

That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.

Merry Christmas Charlie Brown!
Out of the mouths of (cartoon) babes.
I think Linus (quoting Luke, of course) kind of said it all, don't you?

I miss the days when this wasn't offensive!

Merry Christmas to all of you, and may the Lord bless you on this, and all days.
Thanks, as always, for stopping by and may your new year be blessed, happy and productive!
