A Charlie Brown Christmas

A Charlie Brown Christmas Poster

Director: Bill Melendez

Actors: Ann Altieri, Chris Doran, Sally Dryer


As the holiday season approaches, a young boy finds himself troubled by the commercialism surrounding Christmas. Despite the cheerful decor and festive spirit, he feels increasingly disconnected and melancholic, unable to grasp the true meaning of the celebration amidst the hustle and bustle. His concerns are dismissed by his friends, who are preoccupied with writing letters to Santa Claus, practicing for the Christmas play, and reveling in their seasonal anticipation. The boy's dog, a beacon of cheer, decorates his doghouse extravagantly in hopes of winning a neighborhood contest.

In an effort to combat his holiday blues, the boy decides to get involved by directing the school's Christmas play. However, he encounters resistance from his peers, whose visions clash with his own earnest attempts to discover and convey the essence of the season. The boy's frustrations peak when he chooses a modest, unimpressive tree to serve as the centerpiece of their play—a choice that draws ridicule from the group. In the midst of this chaos, he seeks solace in recollections of simpler, more heartfelt Christmases and in the wisdom of his insightful, blanket-toting friend.
