As I put up my Charlie Brown tree in the barn today, I thought of Charlie's question to Linus: "Isn't there anyone who knows what Christmas is all about?" Grandma Mare always told me it was not about getting 4 new horseshoes or a soft saddle blanket. She said Christmas is really all about the birth of a Savior. Linus explains this to Charlie Brown in the YouTube video below.
After I thought more about the real meaning of Christmas, I galloped to Walmart, bought some nativity ornaments and decided to give my Charlie Brown tree a new look this year.
Wishing everyone a Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!
For all the horses out there that are not from Sweden ~ "God Jul" is "Merry Christmas" in Swedish.
