This month marks the 50th anniversary of one of my all-time favorite programs, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’. As a child growing up in the 1960’s, the annual airing of this program was proof that Christmas was just around the corner.
With no reruns on broadcast television, my brothers and I would plan our entire week around watching this special program each year. With a cool soundtrack, the program brought our favorite Peanuts characters to life as Charlie Brown strove to discover the meaning of Christmas. To this day, Linus VanPelt’s simple monologue is one of my favorite holiday memories.
With the holidays and busy year-end schedules upon us once again, I invite you to take the time to make special memories with family and friends and to keep them in your heart where you may easily find them in the future.
As we enjoy this holiday season, we extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all of our readers, friends, and associates throughout the world for everything that you do for us all year long. May your holidays be filled with peace and joy and your New Year with good health and happiness.
