9 Days of Christmas!

This is a little late…I was busy listening to the newest Von Trapp generation sing their talented little hearts out.  Anyhow, on with the show!

A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965) is truly a Christmas classic, just like Mr. Brown himself.  Not only did the movie make “Christmas Time is Here” a beloved holiday song and make “Charlie Brown Christmas Trees” popular, it is one of the few that are shown on Primetime every year.

The film follows America’s favorite schoolboy, Charlie Brown, as he searches for the true meaning of Christmas.  He is repelled by all of the commercialism and consumerism that he sees, and feels that Christmas must be about something more.  Cue the religious morals.  Now, I am generally not big on the spouting of religion in mainstream media– keep in to yourselves in the home, folks–but this is one of the rare occasions where I make an exception.  I absolutely love Linus’ monologue during the Christmas play.  Bonus?  If you don’t have a lot of time, the flick is only 25 minutes long…

About bpaige08

I am one of those infamous 20 somethings, fresh out from under the college umbrella. I have always had a deep love for all things pop culture: movies, television, music, books, and (although I cringe to admit it to the nameless mass reading this) celebrity. Acting is my dream, although I currently need to pay off Uncle Sam before I can pursue my lifelong ambition. But that hasn't stopped my passion. I am also passionate about food, animals, and the environment. No, I am not a vegan. No, I do not want to be one. I like eggs. And cheese. They rock. I am TOTALLY open for suggestions, comments, and complaints. Feel free to harass me for my writing style or tell me how much you agree with me.
