What is Christmas about? Linus (Lucy's blanket-wielding little brother from Charles Schultz's Peanuts series) tells us:

Linus is quoting from Luke 2:8-14 in the Bible, King James translation. Hat tip to Between Two Worlds for the video link. Like many of the commenters there, I wonder how long it will be before this scene is "edited" out of A Charlie Brown Christmas to make it more politically correct, especially considering that the scene was almost cut out of the original.
