A Charlie Brown Christmas

I am a huge fan of Charles Schultz and the Peanuts gang, so of course I couldn't let Christmas go by without making some Charlie Brown's Christmas cookies.

While I was decorating them, I realized that I have learned quite a lot about the holiday from old Chuck and the gang.

Lesson number one comes from Charlie Brown: Don't let the commercial side of Christmas get the upper hand.

Lesson number two from the thumb sucking philosopher Linus: Take time to ponder the season.

Lesson number three from Snoopy:  After decorating the house, take a nap.

Lesson number four from Lucy Van Pelt:  If you feel depressed at the holidays, get involved and help others.  The doctor is in, so that will be five cents please.

Lesson number five again comes from Snoopy:  Let loose and have some fun (especially if you are listening to Vince Guaraldi!).

Lesson number six is from the whole gang: Sing with joy.

Lesson number seven:  LOVE can transform anything .

And the final and most important lesson from Linus:  Remember the true meaning of Christmas.

"And that's what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown".
