It was December 9, 1965 when the world was first given the gift called "A Charlie Brown Christmas". Fifty years??? What??? I was a mere 7 years old then and I recall sitting in my parents living room watching this special year in and year out. No VHS then, no DVD's, no downloads...no nuthin'!!! If you missed that one showing on WCBS-TV, you missed it until next year. I couldn't wait to introduce my kids to The Peanuts Gang doing their thing and I'm sure grandkids will enjoy it someday too. Merry Christmas Charlie Brown.
