On the 50th anniversary of "A Charlie Brown Christmas": the Real story of Christmas and the Gospel according to Luke

This year marks the 50th anniversary of A Charlie Brown Christmas.  With its cool jazz music, real kids’ voices, no laugh track, wry humor, and a timeless message, it was ahead of its time attacking the secularism and commercialism of the “holiday season”. 
The best part of the show had no music at all – 
a simple recitation by Linus of Luke 2: 8-14 that almost did not make it to the screen; 
Charles Schultz resisted network pressure and said If we don’t do it,who will?”

Christmas is the only Federal holiday that is also a religious one – so remember “the reason for the season” and we wish all you a Merry and Blessed Christmas!
