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".
