This is the time of year when we can expect to see holiday specials on just about every channel. Most of them I don’t bother to watch anymore-----but I can never get enough of A Charlie Brown Christmas. What baby boomer hasn’t sat and watched it at least a half dozen times?
I was eight-years-old when the Charles Schutlz classic made its debut on television. Year after year, I have watched it. I’ve danced during the piano rehearsal scene and cried when Charlie and the Peanuts gang gather around the tree at the end and sing “Hark the Herald Angels Sing.” When my daughter was born, it became a tradition in my home to watch it together.
It came on again tonight. This time it was extra special because I got to watch it for the first time with my grandson. It's cool to be a baby boomer---to have grown up during a time when watching television was fun!
