Turn Around Tuesday – Christmas Edition

Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone out there who can tell me what Christmas is all about?

Linus: Sure, Charlie Brown, I can tell you. Lights, please.

“And there were in the same country shepherds abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flocks by night. And lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them, and the glory of the lord shone round about them, and they were afraid. And the angel said unto them, Fear not, for behold, I bring unto you good tidings of great joy, which shall be to all people. For unto you this day is born in the City of Bethlehem, a Savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you; you shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes and lying in a manger. And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly host, praising God, and saying, ‘Glory to God in the highest, and on Earth peace, good will toward men'”.

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

-A Charlie Brown Christmas(1965)

From our family to yours, we wish the warmest of holidays and the grandest of celebrations. May this day be full of love, peace and good will that lingers over into tomorrow.

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!

The Best Christmas Present!

Christmas is always a special time of the year. Spending time with family is always a great treat.

This year, our family has grown. Saturday, my baby sister and her husband welcomed my niece, Phylisa, into the world. She was a bit early, and at 4lbs, 7ozs, she will need a little extra attention. But, she and mom are both healthy and beautiful.

Merry Christmas, Phylisa!


  1. Wish you a merry Christmas and a happy new year


  2. Wow. It’s great to have a baby in the family. Congratulations to your sister. Even babies who are a little premature can be healthy and bright. Some people have notions that they might not be, but they can. They just have to be nurtured well. Anyway, happy new year!

  3. Yeah, that’s the meaning of Christmas! You go girl, er, Charlie Brown!

    Thanks for bringing it back to centre again. I truly hope that 2008 starts and remains as a year of peace, fun and sustainable success for you and your family!

  4. Jen – Thanks for the good thoughts. While we know them to be true, it always helps to have somebody else say it 🙂

  5. Pete –

    It is my favorite part of my favorite Christmas show! I knew when I started the series that it would be the Christmas finale. I am glad you enjoyed it!

    Best to you and yours this year and every year.
