There's Something About a Child's Voice

You know you're getting old when those classic TV specials come on, and you remember the first year they were aired. It's October and that means that some time soon, Charlie Brown's "Great Pumpkin" special will be on, which means about six weeks later "A Charlie Brown Christmas" Will be on.  I love the part where Linus recites the story of Christ's birth from memory (in King James English), and then at the end he turns to his friend and says, "And that's what Christmas is all about, Charlie Brown."

There is something about a child's voice telling a wonderful story. Enjoy the following recitation.

I am assuming that the three kids behind this little girl still have to get up and do their part of the program. They seem to be in another world--probably thinking, "Why didn't we save this kid for last. She's killin' us. Please just let us go back to our seats when she is done. I can't even remember how my story starts."
