What Christmas is All About

This is a cute, but inspiring thoughts from one of my all-time favorite Christmas Classic movie, A Charlie Brown Christmas (a made-for-TV animated film originally created in 1965):

CHARLIE BROWN: Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?


LINUS VAN PELT: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about.

LINUS VAN PELT: "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 unto 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 Savior, 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.' 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.'"
[Linus picks up his blanket and walks back towards Charlie Brown]

LINUS VAN PELT: That's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
