“Good Grief!”

Filed under: Blog — Michael @ 7:32 am

Greetings and salutations from the sand, sun and surf of Cape Cod, Martha’s Vineyard and the dark, soon to be light, mild, quite early island of Nantucket! Great to be with you before the dawn, ‘down of the docks’ of ye ‘ole Hyannis Harbor; broadcasting LIVE on this Friday, The Twenty-Third Day of December, 2016.  With only two ’shopping days’ left before the big day of Christmas!  Way, way, way back in the ancient year of 1965, Charles Schultz, creator of blessed, beloved “The Peanuts’, came out with an animated special that many still cherish to this day. Here is a quote from Charlie Brown’s best friend, Linus Van Pelt, after he heard this from his pal who was lamenting on the torture he received from his peers regarding his ’small’, little Christmas tree… Have a great Christmas week end y’all!

“I guess they were right Linus, I shouldn’t have picked this little tree. Everything I do turns into disaster. I guess I don’t really know what Christmas is all about. Is there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?”

Linus: “Sure Charlie Brown, I can tell you what Christmas is all about.”

(light please…)

“And there were in the same country, shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. An lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were so afraid. And the angel said to them, ‘Fear Not!’

(Linus drops his security blanket on purpose…)

“…For behold, I bring to you good tidings of great Joy! Which shall 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 a 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 his blanket and walks towards his friend…)

“…that’s what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown”
