A Special Christmas Christmas Special

I know, that's a weird title!  But, it will make sense I hope. 
After watching all the usual Christmas specials, I  find that one in particular still gets me excited.  I, of course, love The Grinch and Frosty and Rudolph, but when a little boy named Linus actually QUOTES FROM THE BIBLE in a CHRISTMAS show, I just get so full of joy!  Yes, Christmas is love, peace, family, togetherness- all those wonderful things espoused by those other shows.  But the real meaning, the absolute truth about Christmas is that God so loved us that He sent His son, a tiny baby, to save us.  Unfortunately, we end up hearing so little of that aspect in today's media.  So I thank little Linus for reminding us of the true "reason for the season".
I hope you all have a safe and merry Christmas and a very blessed New Year!
