Our world and society has been changing so rapidly the last few years. Certain words have been changed or deleted from our calendars and schedules. Salutations have been reworded to avoid created offense to some.
It brought back to memory one lice from a familiar Christmas special when the poignant question is asked:
“Isn’t there anybody who can tell me what Christmas is all about?”
One of the special memories of Christmas past was when my children and I would snuggle under the covers on my bed, settle in and watch Christmas specials. It never matter whether it was Frosty, or Rudolph The Red Nose Reindeer, or Charlie Brown Christmas. It was always a special time.
How can we ever forget Charlie Brown? The little, depressed boy who is in search of the true meaning of Christmas. We even call the small, straggly Christmas tree on the lot, “The Charlie Brown Tree” and we all know what than means.
But it is his haunting question about the true meaning of Christmas which we all remember most.
Thankfully, his little friend, Linus answers:
“For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Saviour, which is Christ the Lord.” (Luke 2:11, KJV)
