Every time I watch this film I have to resist the urge to sit on the floor Indian style with my face in my hands. It totally turns me into a little kid again; And somehow after forty years, and a million replays, the simple story and perfectly jazzy soundtrack by the the Vince Guaraldi Trio make it a holiday classic that never feels dated.
Our favorite Debbie Downer Charlie Brown is suffering from a lil’ case of what doctors call Seasonal Affective Disorder. He’s annoyed by the commercialization of Christmas that has turned even his baby sister Sally into a gold digger. His friend and part-time psychologist Dr. Lucy Van Pelt suggests he take a seat in the director’s chair of their school Nativity Play. Unfortunately, Brown is no Scorsese. He can barely get everyone to stop dancing let alone turn them into thespians of Biblical proportions. This is my favorite scene: Schroeder pounding on the keys, Snoopy jamming on the bass, and all of the kids delivering some of the best dance moves you’ve ever seen! Once the dancing stops, Linus and the most charming little Christmas
tree branch teach the children the true meaning of Christmas. Best Holiday movie, ever.
Happy Holidays from I Love Hot Dogs!
