Isn't that the most perfect moment in all tv? What are the odds that could even be MADE in the current climate, let alone get on the air.
Watching Linus in those moments gets my Christmas season in gear.

"Peace on earth, goodwill to men"? The Latin has it, `et in terra pax hominibus, bonae voluntatis". Note the Latin genetive case in the words `bonae voltuntatis'.
The phrase properly rendered is,
"PEACE ON EARTH TO MEN OF GOOD WILL".
The angels' words are not universalist, if you get my drift.

Actually, I think the best moments comes right before and after Linus's speech; before, when Charlie's poor little tree bends low and symbolically dies under the weight of a single ornament; and after when the pathetic little tree is made resplendent with the decorations from Snoopy's doghouse. It is a parable of death and resurrection; and that, too, is the real meaning of Christmas.

(The Office of the Keys should be exercised as some ministry needs to be exorcised.)
Yep, I'm 50-yrs old and it still will bring a tear.
