The Twelve Animated Days of Christmas #12

How else could we end this but with an excerpt from A Charlie Brown Christmas, the greatest piece of holiday animation ever created, directed by the estimable Bill Melendez.

    You left out the best part:

    And an angel of the Lord suddenly stood before them, and the glory of the Lord shone around them; and they were terribly frightened. But the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid; for behold, I bring you good news of great joy which will be for all the people; for today in the city of David there has been born for you a Savior, who is Christ the Lord. “This will be a sign for you: you will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger.” And suddenly there appeared with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God and saying,
    “Glory to God in the highest, And on earth peace among men with whom He is pleased.”

    Merry Christmas!

    …The whole show is on YouTube as well as several clips and a few rather adult parodies or three.

    I learned recently that Schultz, fought vigerously to have the reading from Luke included in the special. Pretty much vowing if it wasn’t then there would be no special. Incredibly this special still runs on National TV and for many, many people this is the only was they learn “what Christmas is all about”. Thank you Charles Schultz
