Sharon Remembers the True Meaning of Christmas
Each year I watch the Charlie Brown Christmas special for the same scene. It makes me tear up to hear what the TRUE meaning of Christmas is all about from the mouth of the animated character of Linus, Charlie Brown’s best friend.
When Charlie Brown asks if anyone knows what Christmas is all about, the normally shy Linus puts the spotlight on himself and recites a passage from The Gospel According to St Luke, Chapter 2, versus 8-14:
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.
12 And this shall be a sign unto you; Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger.
That’s what Christmas is all about.
