A lot of people probably already know this one. However, if you don’t, I will still do a short little summary. Christmas is just around the corner and Charlie Brown sees that everyone around him, his friends and family seems to have lost the Christmas spirit and is influenced by the commercialism of the holiday. In need, he seeks out Lucy’s “psychiatric” help and she advises him to direct the Christmas play. Because of this, he tries to get everyone to have Christmas spirit with a little tree that he buys. Little does he know that this will bring everyone together and helps everyone find the true meaning of Christmas.
This is one of my favorite Christmas movies, however, I just managed to get it last year. The Peanuts gang always puts a smile on my face. Linus with his security blanket and how he manipulates it in every way possible so that Lucy can’t take it away. Schroeder with his musical talent and love for Beethoven and Lucy trying to get his attention all the time is just adorable. We also have Snoopy and Woodstock that tries to be Santa Claus and his little helpers. We have the one who brings the most commercialism and its Charlie Brown’s little sister, Sally with her material and monetary desires. This is a cute flick and after so many years, its held up quite well to the general audience.
My DVD also had the short TV flick called Its Christmastime Again, Charlie Brown. That was quite fun as well. Part of the Peanuts gang are all preparing for the school play and everyone is working hard to practice for their parts. While Charlie Brown tries to save up enough money to get the red hair girl a pair of gloves as a Christmas gift.
Who is your favorite in the Peanuts gang?
