Peanuts: The Meaning of Christmas?
I am a big fan of Peanuts. I couldn’t remember when it started. Since I can remember it has always been one of my favourite comic alongside Tin Tin and Asterix, the Gaul. For a long time I have forgotten Charlie Brown and Snoopy, busy with life and other things important, or rather that I think important. My time is still 24hours but there are more things to do. Email, chat, blogs (of course), more inventions and technology to catch up. Perhaps someone forgot that we need to create more time to use all these things.
I stumbled over a blog about Peanuts and as one do, one looks over in Youtube and indulge oneself over countless suggestion – I saw many Peanuts clips that and they made me wonder whether Peanuts was actually created for adult rather than kid. The music and the dialogue are just pure genius. It simple for kids but hidden with deep and meaningful message for adult.
As Christmas season is already well on the way, snow – lots of snows. Street full of shoppers. Expectation, looking, searching for happiness. I’d like to share this video with you: The meaning of Christmas.
Do nor be afraid I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Saviour has been born to you; he is Christ the Lord This will be a sign to you: You wilt find a baby wrapped in strips of cloths and lying in a manger.
“great joy that will be for all the people” – yes, that’s me and you. And people of the world.
While gift and presents are of course important they can not replace our heart, friendship and care. Let’s us not forget that not.
Merry x mas to the world, and to you.
