One of my favorite shows to watch to prepare for Thanksgiving was "Charlie Brown's Thanksgiving". As kids, Heidi and I looked forward to watching this holiday classic. We were, and I still am, Charlie Brown fans, but it was the activity surrounding this show that we enjoyed the most.
We watched this as a family, as soon as the TV Guide (do you remember this necessary item?) came, Mom marked the calendar for when each of the holiday shows would be on. The night Charlie Brown was on, Dad was always home to watch it with us. He never worked late because it was one of the special things he liked to do with us.
Thanksgiving is a very important holiday. Ours was the first country in the world to make a national holiday to give thanks. --Linus"
But Thanksgiving is more than eating, Chuck. You heard what Linus was saying out there. Those pilgrims were thankful for what had happened to them, and we should be thankful, too. We should just be thankful for being together. I think that's what they mean by Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown. --Marcy
This is the childhood memory of why I like this annual tradition. As an adult, Charlie Brown was my mother-in-law's favorite holiday cartoon. Charlie Brown never grows old and the message of love, hope, and thanksgiving fill this show. When I was a kid, we had to wait and it was a special night because it was only on once. In today's society, you can buy all the Charlie Brown shows on DVD and watch them whenever you want.
There's enough problems in the world already, Chuck,
without these stupid misunderstandings.
