A Charlie Brown Christmas

This is a Christmas memory from my childhood.  
I especially enjoy the timeless message from Linus, actually from Luke.

Below is some information about A Charlie Brown Christmas from Wikipedia at:

A Charlie Brown Christmas made its debut on CBS on December 9, 1965. In the special, lead character Charlie Brown finds himself depressed despite the onset of the cheerful holiday season.   Lucy suggests he direct a school Christmas play, but he is both ignored and mocked by his peers. The story touches on the over-commercialization and secularism of Christmas, and serves to remind viewers of the true meaning of Christmas (the birth of Jesus Christ).

A Charlie Brown Christmas received high ratings and acclaim from critics. It has since been honored with both an Emmy and Peabody Award. It became an annual broadcast in the United States, and has been aired during the Christmas season traditionally every year since its premiere.
