Charlie Brown Christmas

Luke 2:8-14

Charlie Brown begins to wonder if he really knows what Christmas is all about. Linus states he can tell him, and recites the second chapter of the Gospel of Luke, verses 8 through 14 from the Authorized King James Version:

“8) And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the field, keeping watch over their flock by night. 9) 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. 10) And the angel said unto them, Fear not; for, behold, I bring you tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. 11) For unto you is born this day in the city of David a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. 12)And this shall be a sign unto you: Ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes, lying in a manger. 13) And suddenly there was with the angel a multitude of the heavenly host praising God, and saying, 14) Glory to God in the highest, and on earth peace and goodwill towards men.”

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

Christmas Music, Part 20 ~ O Little Town Of Bethlehem

O Little Town Of Bethlehem

 

“O Little Town of Bethlehem” is a popular Christmas carol. The text was written by Phillips Brooks (1835–1893), an Episcopal priest, Rector of the Church of the Holy Trinity, Philadelphia. He was inspired by visiting the Palestinian city of Bethlehem in 1865.

Three years later, he wrote the poem for his church and his organist, Lewis Redner, added the music. Redner’s tune, simply titled “St. Louis”, is the tune used most often for this carol in the United States.

Dick Van Dyke Candlelight Processional at Disneyland

This was a classic moment caught on video by Shadowgamer.

After reading Isaiah 9:6, it started to rain, so they brought him an umbrella. Dick angled the umbrella towards the sky and said, “I hope I don’t fly away,” as the crowd went wild in response to his Mary Poppins reference.

Then a group of MouseWaiters wished him a Happy Birthday and his response to that was priceless. Enjoy!
