Flashback Friday - The TRUE meaning of Christmas

Each year I look forward to the Charlie Brown Christmas special and am even more excited to share that memory with both Sarah and Ansley. My very favorite part is when Linus gets up in front of everyone and tells the real reason for Christmas. I think this is a special memory for me because ever since I was little, I could recite the entire thing with him. As a child we were taught those same verses from Luke chapter 2. I vividly remember being in kindergarten and reciting those verses as we put on a play in our classroom. I don't remember too much from that kindergarten year but I do remember learning bible verses weekly and especially at Christmas time. Thank you mom and dad for instilling the true meaning of Christmas to us at such a young age.
