I remember as a kid watching A Charlie Brown Christmas every holiday season. It was one of my favorite Christmas shows, and still is. I love that my children also enjoy it. It’s so great to be able to share this tradition with them. I’m even more excited to watch the stage version at The Children’s Theatre of Cincinnati with them this Friday!
Here’s a little more about the show:
