I found a wonderful post by Kim Komando. She said,

This YouTube video features a Christmas classic. A Charlie Brown Christmas is one of the most popular Christmas specials. It first aired in 1965. And it’s been on television every year since. It has been honored with an Emmy and a Peabody award.

One scene almost didn’t make it into the final show. Charlie Brown asks if anyone knows what Christmas is really about. Linus then recites the story of the birth of Christ. Network executives weren’t sure people would sit through Bible passages. They wanted it removed.

Charles Schulz put his foot down. He reportedly said, “If we don’t tell the true meaning of Christmas, who will?” The scene stayed in.

If you missed it this year on TV you can see the scene here . Merry Christmas everyone.
