Bring a Charlie Brown Christmas Tree Home
This Christmas Tree Justs Needs a Little Love
One of my favorite scenes in A Charlie Brown Christmas is watching what happens when Charlie Brown picks out the scrawny, pathetic Christmas tree that no one else wanted and takes it home to his friends.
I think it is very interesting that over the years, Charlie Brown's pathetic Christmas tree has become a symbol of the Christmas Spirit and of the true meaning of Christmas.
I was so happy to discover several years ago that these scrawny Christmas trees are available for purchase. I got one for our family to teach my daughters about the importance of giving a little love at Christmas. This scrawny tree has gone on to become one of the best selling Christmas trees on Amazon. Not bad for a little tree.
The Charlie Brown Tree is available in different versions through Amazon and eBay or you can make your own Charlie Brown Tree from a scraggly tree with a blue blanket and a red ornament.
It's not a bad little tree, really.
It just needs a little love.— Linus

Another Charlie Brown Tree
A Tree gives the Meaning of Christmas
Several years ago now, year I got the Charlie Brown Tree and a large Linus blanket (no longer available) as a special present for my daughters.
I made sure they'd watched the Charlie Brown Christmas before they opened up the two gifts.
My girls immediately took to the tree and carefully wrapped it up in the Linus Blanket, giving it a lot of love.
In the off season, the Linus Blanket has gone on to become our main T.V. couch blanket, the one that everyone curls up under.
It is still one of the trees that gets set up every Christmas, with lots of love.

Play Charlie Brown Christmas Music at Christmas
Christmas isn't Christmas at our house until we hear the Charlie Brown song, "Christmas time is here..."
Christmas time is here,
happiness and cheer,
fun for all that children
call their favorite time of year.
Sleigh bells in the air;
beauty every where;
yuletide by the fireside
and joyful memories there.

Charlie Brown Tree - an Iconic Classic
Apparently, I am not the only person who enamored by Charlie Brown's Tree.
This scrawny tree that only Charlie Brown wanted to love has become a "must have" item at homes, dorms and even office settings.
Other people strive to find a "Charlie Brown Tree" the saddest or scrawniest tree for a variety of reasons.
I see the tree as a way of showing demonstrating love and caring at Christmas.
Charlie Brown's pathetic Christmas tree has become a symbol of the true meaning of Christmas.
Amy Graff, the Mommy Files blogger for the SFGate challenged everyone to share a photo of their pitiful tree with a lot of heart as part of an online gallery.

Instead of feeling happy,
I feel sort of let down.— Charlie Brown
