A CHARLIE BROWN CHRISTMAS (1965)

It’s the coldest time of the year, which means we need community more than ever to help us stay warm and remind us of the ongoing project of humanity and our part in it. So consider us the luckiest Peanuts on block, since we get to welcome back Emily VanDerWerff (Vox & Arden Podcast)! We talk about endings, opportunities for renewal, and the melancholy that comes with our experiences of the holidays. We also delve into our personal religious beliefs (or lack thereof) and how they interact with our feelings about Christmas and choosing our communities. And, of course, no conversation about Charlie Brown would be complete without a discussion about Charles Schulz and his complex feelings about Christmas and droopy trees. So, don’t be blockhead — hitch a ride on our sleigh and recite the annunciation to the shepherds with us!

Read Emily’s piece on the modern family!

I never thought it was such a bad little tree. It’s not bad at all, really. Maybe it just needs a little love.
