Director’s Message

Recently, I noticed a television schedule announcing the airing of one of my all-time favorite programs, ‘A Charlie Brown Christmas’. As a child growing up in the 1960’s, the annual airing of this program was proof that Christmas was just around the corner.

With no reruns on broadcast television, my brothers and I would plan our entire week around watching this special program each year. With a cool soundtrack, the program brought our favorite Peanuts characters to life as Charlie Brown strove to discover the meaning of Christmas. To this day, Linus VanPelt’s simple monologue is one of my favorite holiday memories.

With the holidays and busy year-end schedules upon us once again, I invite you to take the time to make special memories with family and friends and to keep them in your heart where you may easily find them in the future.

As we enjoy this holiday season, we extend a heartfelt ‘Thank You’ to all of our readers, friends, and associates throughout the world for everything that you do for us all year long. May your holidays be filled with peace and joy and your New Year with good health and happiness.

~ Jim Seffrin and the Staff of Infraspection Institute

Linus’ Monologue

Charlie Brown: Isn’t there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?

Linus: Sure, Charlie Brown. I can tell you what Christmas is all about. Lights, please.

And there were in the same country, shepherds, abiding in the fields, keeping watch over their flock by night and lo, the angel of the Lord came upon them. And the glory of the Lord shone ’round about them and they were so afraid. And the angel said unto them, “Fear not. For behold, I bring you tidings of great joy which shall be to all people. For unto you is born this day in the city of David, a savior, which is Christ the Lord. And this shall be a sign unto you, ye shall find the babe wrapped in swaddling clothes lying in a manger.”

And suddenly there was with the angel, a multitude of the heavenly hosts praising God and saying, “Glory to God in the highest and on Earth, Peace and Goodwill toward men.”

That’s what Christmas is all about Charlie Brown.
