Our Christmas Tradition


Guest post written by my buddy Royce Heath

We have a family tradition around here at Christmas time. My kids love to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas. It has to be done every year or Christmas just isn't Christmas around here. We've been doing this since the kids were about 3 years old and even though one of them is a teenager now, we still watch it every year.

We like to watch A Charlie Brown Christmas on our Satellite TV. I always make hot cocoa with whipped cream for everyone and my oldest daughter pops up a huge bowl of popcorn. It usually airs on ABC during the first week of December. My kids love Snoopy and Linus and I think they just love the whole flow of the story.

If you asked my kids what they look forward to on Christmas, I have no doubt in my mind that they would shout Charlie Brown. It's exciting and it really gets you in the Christmas spirit. I love the smiles it brings to my children's faces as they sip hot cocoa and munch on popcorn. Hopefully they will pass the tradition on when they decide to start their own families. I know I will be there to bring in the tradition with them!
