Television executives tried to reject The Charlie Brown Christmas story because it has the true story of Christmas. Charlie Brown has picked out an ugly tree, everyone laughs at him including Snoopy, and he screams out for someone to tell him the real meaning of Christmas. Linus begins to recite Luke's account of the birth of Jesus. In the same way, we try to buy the best gift, a great tree, but nothing is enough. Only Jesus is the perfect gift. The Charlie Brown Christmas Story was well received by television audiences and continues to be shown each Christmas.
