When we were growing up, we loved to read peanuts in the comics. and of course, the movies as we got older. What a great surprise and awesome DVD, of the Peanuts Holiday Collection in one place.
All of my favorites together, Charlie and the gang. Now we can start a new holiday tradition and watch these favorites with the kids, They can enjoy the same thing, we did as a kid. My favorite is A Charlie Brown Christmas, poor Charlie is upset, that he thinks Christmas is so commercial. takes some coaxing from Lucy and a holiday pageant and decorating a tree to bring him out of it. This movie teaches us all what Christmas is really about. It’s not about finding the “perfect” gift or having the most beautiful Christmas Tree in the neighborhood. Little Linus, always the voice of wisdom, reminds us all of the true spirit of Christmas Loved to sit with my sisters and watch this movie. And the decorating of our tree was always the best, daddy had his way of doing it. There are so many great movies on this one DVD.
