A Charlie Brown Christmas is an undisputed holiday classic, but cross my heart, I had never seen it before today. I knew all about the scraggly tree, and I’d heard the soundtrack a million times, but for some reason our paths hadn’t officially crossed until I sat down to write this post.

I’m not sure why it took me so long to have a proper viewing; the beloved 1965 animation is a full 25 minutes of pure, understated sweetness. Of all the Charlie Browns in the world, I just might be the Charlie Browniest, so it’s extra nice to get a little holiday spark whenever I can muster it. A little scrawny tree, a frozen pond and a whirl on the ice with a cute puppy dog certainly would help my cause, too. — Amy M.
