TNB Night Owl – “What Christmas Is All About”

The Adoration of the Shepherds, by Giorgione

The conversation between Charlie Brown and Linus, from A Charlie Brown Christmas

“Everything I do turns into a disaster. I guess I don’t really know what Christmas is all about. Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?” – Charlie Brown

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

And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night.

And, lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them: and they were sore afraid.

And the angel said unto them, Fear not: for, behold, I bring 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 Saviour, 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.

Luke 2, verses 8-14
King James Version (KJV)

“That’s what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown.” – Linus

Have a safe and very Merry Christmas!
