the real reason

i absolutely love "the Charlie Brown Christmas Special" that is on every year. i think it's my favorite holiday special. why you ask? linus. when charlie brown is at his wits end with the reason for Christmas, linus puts it all in perspective. Jesus. God incarnate. The Word made flesh (and, as eugene peterson says in The Message, "...and moved into the neighborhood."). it is the event we date time by and it is the real "reason for the season".

thank you linus for this great reminder.
