A Charlie Brown Christmas was truly sad

peanut's Christmas
Christmas Eve we decided to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. Have you watched it lately? It is hard to listen to the abuse Charlie Brown suffers in the name of comedy. The phrase “with friends like these who needs enemies” is so appropriate for Brown. After hearing the abuse he suffers on the daily it is no surprise that he tries Dr. Lucy’s medicine for support. As a child I just enjoyed seeing a cartton special during primetime, but as an adult one has to feel sorry for Brown even when the group finally gets the real meaning of the season. share your thoughts.

Merry Christmas Everyone from Ebony Mom Politics

I’m up early this Christmas morning. Back in the day it was because the children were at the door knocking wanting to go downstairs and see if Santa had fulfilled their wishlist. Now it is quiet as the kids sleep in. It gives me a chance to wish all of you a very Merry Christmas. Every year a member of my church bakes a pound cake for me and my family. The cake is delicious but the fact that she cares enough to make it for me makes it so special. It simply something I look forward to every year. It’s a small gesture but it is an act of love. This holiday I encourage each of you to that…a simple act of love. You might have spent a fortune on gifts or maybe you didn’t spend anything, but one thing we all can do today is show love. Remember Jesus is the Reason for the Season. He was and is love so show some love today. Merry Christmas.

Christmas 2009: A Different Kind of Holiday

Yesterday I read an article about a mother begging for Christmas presents on Craigslist. I remember as a child some years we got what we wanted and some years we did not. If the money was running funny we did not get the things we asked for and we survived.  My parents were hard workers and they never would have begged for gifts for us. It is understandable that parents want their children to have a Merry Christmas, but some things are nice and some things are necessary. It is nice to have a big tree surrounded by lots of presents, but it is necessary to be able to feed and clothe your children. Our society has commercialized this holiday to the point that it is unrecognizable. This is what makes parents feel guilty if they can fulfill the Christmas that their child has fantasized, and leads to begging on Craigslist.
