    Aloha Monkeys!

    I wanted to take just a moment to say “Merry Christmas!” to all our members…

    Our very best to you and yours for a Happy, Joyful and Safe Christmas!

    You know… one of my favorite shows is still “A Charlie Brown Christmas” from way back in 1965… 50 years ago and still going strong!

    Still love it today!

    Here’s some background on this classic
    Fifty years ago, "A Charlie Brown Christmas" was first broadcast on American television. Some network executives thought it would be ignored, while others worried that quoting the Bible would offend viewers. Some wanted its creator, Charles Schulz, to omit the Christmas story, but Schulz insisted it stay in. The program was an immediate success and has been rebroadcast every year since 1965.
    A Charlie Brown Christmas is the first prime-time animated TV special based upon the comic strip Peanuts, by Charles M. Schulz. It was produced and directed by former Warner Bros. and UPA animator Bill Meléndez, who also supplied the voice for the character of Snoopy.

    And here’s my favorite part….

    Luke 2: 8-14

    Just a reminder from this old humble bear… don’t forget the greatest gift of all….

    Share this message if you like… and invite a friend or even a stranger to Church or offer to share… I hear 3 of 4 people would listen ;) (anyone want to know more... just pm me ;) )

    And a little "Nudge"... share a random act of kindness to a stranger this season... a smile or even holding a door open... you just never know how that might just make someone's day or change their life.... ;)

    Have a wonderful day!

    Merry Christmas all!

    Take Care and God Bless,

    Thank you @Bear for sharing this. So often we get swept up in the materialism that this wonderful season has become, it is nice to be reminded of the true meaning. I do believe the best thing we all could do is give to each other from our hearts.

    Christmas is not a time nor season, but a state of mind

    Merry Christmas Monkeys, may your holiday season be blessed. I am really looking forward to 2016.
