Charlie Brown Christmas

Charlie: Isn’t there anyone who understands what Christmas is all about? 

Linus: Sure, I can tell you what Christmas is all about. 

Linus goes to center stage, spotlight. 

Linus: “And there were in the same country Shepards abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 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. And the angel said unto them, ‘fear not, for behold, I bring you tidings of great joy which will be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David a savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you. Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in the manger.’ And suddenly, there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God and saying, ‘glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men.’” 

Linus picks up blanket, walks back to piano. 

Linus: That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.
