Skip to comments.A Charlie Brown Christmas, The Real Story
Posted on 12/24/2012 6:32:37 PM PST by Bratch
Every year at this time, the topic comes up around our house: "What is your favorite Christmas show?" Every year I give the same answer. That little ol' half hour special that first aired in 1965, A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Oh, the scene with the sad looking Christmas tree is nice, the kids singing "Hark, the Herald Angels Sing" is touching, but the most daring moment of any Christmas special is when Linus teaches Charlie Brown the real meaning of Christmas and he recites Luke Chapter 2 from the King James Version of the Bible.
The Linus monologue lasts about a minute, but for Christians, it is one of the most compelling minutes of TV, ever.

So true, thanks.
Thank you. Brings it all into focus.
Merry Christmas to all.
1:50 Linus tells Charlie Brown the true meaning of Christmas.
King James Version (KJV)
7 And she brought forth her firstborn son, and wrapped him in swaddling clothes, and laid him in a manger; because there was no room for them in the inn.
8 And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.
9 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.
10 And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people.
11 For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
13 And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying,
14 Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace, good will toward men.
Merry Christmas to all my fellow freepers!
Absolutely cry like a baby every time I see it.
God bless Charles Schultz for standing courageously against the onslaught from the Hollywood titans.
