Charlie Brown Christmas. I watch it every year. Just love it. Our Daily Bread Design has the clip on their blog. You can watch it here
Maybe I am out of touch because I have eliminated most mainstream media, radio, TV, etc. but I don't hear much or feel the pressure as in years past to eliminate Christ from Christmas. Maybe the solution has been to add more winter holidays so Christmas is now just one of those. Years ago when Christmas was the only winter holiday, we as a family not only kept Christ as the center of Christmas, we ignored and actually did not include Santa. But I did not insist that everyone else eliminate Santa. If people want to have a secular holiday season or celebrate some of the newer winter holidays, then let them go for it. Isn't that the beauty of our America - freedom of speech and freedom of religion? So with that little rant out of the way, I want to wish each of you a Very Merry Christmas and my hope is that each of you will consider looking into the origin of Christmas in the Bible in Luke 1:26 - 2:20. the birth of Jesus is an amazing story. The purpose of His birth - to come to earth to redeem mankind - is an amazing act of love. No matter how you celebrate Christmas or whatever winter holiday you are celebrating, I hope it is filled with fun, love, family, peace, and goodwill.
