Every year I see this I’m half surprised that the networks haven’t edited this part out.
I’ve gotta’ admit I find it moving every time.
Thanks to Common Cents for reminding me of this one.

The interesting thing is that even 45 years ago it was almost blocked.
"Mendelson and animator Bill Melendez fretted about the insistence by Peanuts creator Charles Schulz that his first-ever TV spinoff end with a reading of the Christmas story from the Gospel of Luke by a lisping little boy named Linus."
"We told Schulz, 'Look, you can't read from the Bible on network television,' " Mendelson says. "When we finished the show and watched it, Melendez and I looked at each other and I said, 'We've ruined Charlie Brown.' "
Too bad Charles Schulz's own life was rather sad as an atheist, but he got this perfectly.

Lovely! Thanks for posting–seeing this is always the best moment of Christmas-time television.
