Christmas in my house was never complete without seeing A Charlie Brown Christmas.
It premiered the year my parents were married in 1965 and I think It was The first holiday special they watched together at home. There is an innocence there to this day that I yearn to be a part of again, It would always start off with the special logo, and the Dolly Madison ads were a brain catcher, But it also made me want to create. I loved the simple snow, and the lights and the music. There was Magic in Charles Schulz's work that I can never hope to achieve in my neighborhood, but I do hope to let my characters grow and evolve and carry on for as long as they'll let me. This week's strip is a tribute to the giant of cartooning and a thank you for Christmases gone Merry Christmas to all and to all a good night.
