Hamish’s Perspective | A Charlie Brown Christmas
The Two Gay Geeks and our Staff are taking a much needed break from Thanksgiving through the end of the year. But, we still wanted to have content for you to read during that time. As such we got busy and watched all of our favorite holiday videos. Some are classics and others are off-beat and loosely associated with the holidays. We hope you enjoy our offerings and that you holiday season is safe, sane, and satisfying.
A Charlie Brown Christmas
Depending on when you read this, you might be either knee-deep or up to your eyeballs in Christmas shopping… or you might be in a real life chase against time for the very last available toy that happens to be the popular “must-have” item this year just like Arnie and Sinbad were in that mid-90s movie “Jingle all the way”.
Recently, with films such as “Saving Christmas”, such materialism is raised to the lofty heights of spiritualism.
So, it might be refreshing to remember a film from just about all of our childhoods, “A Charlie Brown Christmas”.
If you don’t know, or don’t remember, this film follows our hero Charlie Brown on an existential crisis as he faces the materialism of the Christmas holiday and wonders what it’s really all about. He attempts to direct the Christmas Play, but the Children laugh at his little Christmas tree, but then, his best friend Linus helps him, and all of us, remember the true meaning of Christmas.
In our increasingly busy lives, we try to overcompensate the lack of time that we spend with the ones we love the most with ever more and bigger presents. However, I think we can all spare 30 minutes to sit down with our loves ones and remember what Christmas is all about.
Find it on your TV, or wherever you choose to watch this classic short film this year.
All the best of the season to you and yours.
