Dear Friends,
Thank you for joining us for A Charlie Brown Christmas.
Growing up, it was a family tradition to watch the animated cartoon every holiday season, and one we looked forward to with great anticipation throughout the year.

Interestingly, A Charlie Brown Christmas was nearly canceled before it ever made it to the television screen. When the executives at Columbia Broadcasting System (CBS) learned of Linus’ recitation of the Gospel of Luke, they worried its message might be too blatant for general audiences.  However, Charles M. Schulz, the show’s writer, and creator of the Peanuts comic-strip on which the story is based, was adamant it remained in the script.
In addition, concerns about the score, which contained both original jazz pieces composed by Vince Guaraldi and traditional Christmas music, caused the network to consider canceling. However, The Coca-Cola Company, which commissioned and sponsored the show, insisted they move forward. A Charlie Brown Christmas was presented
on Dec. 9, 1965 - and has aired every year since.

Now here we are, precisely fifty-seven years later, sharing this very special show with all of you. As you listened to the story of Christmas, and sang along to the familiar holiday songs, I hope this brought back fond memories of your own, and
perhaps will create a new tradition for you and your family.
