Ever since I was a kid, my favorite Christmas show has been A Charlie Brown Christmas. In fact, when I was a teen-ager (or maybe a pre-teen), I wrote an adaptation of the story into a play that my youth group performed for our church. I played Linus. And yes, that meant that I had to do the monologue from Luke 2. If I remember correctly, we experienced our own Christmas miracle because I had been stumbling over the lines during the dress rehearsal, but was able to pull it off without a hitch for the actual play.
I love how Linus just told the story and helped everyone to remember what Christmas is all about.
