This television classic features the Peanuts characters in the story of Charlie Brown’s problematic efforts to mount a school Christmas pageant. Everybody’s on board: Lucy, Snoopy, Schroeder, Pig-Pen, but the biggest impression is surely made by Linus, who stops the show with his recitation from the gospels of the story of Christ’s birth.
