A Charlie Brown Christmas (1965)

Chuck and his merry group of misfits sure know how to party. Except that the Christmas season has arrived and Charlie is depressed. Nothing is going the way he would like.

After visiting Lucy’s doctor office/stand, she tells him to direct a Christmas play. Things do not work out so great at rehearsals, so Charlie decides to get a Christmas tree for the play.

Charlie picks a sapling and everyone ridicules him for his choice. He’s even more depressed until his friends come through and decorate the little tree.

Sometimes the holidays get you down, but friends and family are what it’s all about. This TV production is still great today after 53 years. My favorite part is the music, which accentuates all of the fun of the kids.
