This has just about got to be my favorite scene from any movie ever. Ever. I love it.
And there were shepherds living in out in the fields nearby, keeping watching over their flocks at night. An angel of the Lord appeared to them, and the glory of the Lord shone round about them, and they were sore afraid. But the angel said to them,
"Do not be afraid. I bring you good news of great joy that will be for all the people. Today in the town of David a Savior has been born to you; He is Christ the Lord. And this will be a sign unto you: You will find a baby wrapped in cloths and lying in a manger."
Suddenly a great company of the heavenly host appeared with the angel, praising God and saying,
"Glory to God in the highest,
and on earth peace to men on whom His favor rests."
When the angels had left them and gone into heaven, the shepherds said to one another, "Let's go to Bethelehem and see this thing that has happened, which the Lord has told us about."
So they hurried off and found Mary and Joseph, and the baby, who was lying in the manger. When they had seen Him, they spread the word concerning what had been told them about this child, and all who heard it were amazed at what the shepherds said to them. But Mary treasured up all these things and pondered them in her heart.
The shepherd returned, glorifying and praising God for all the things they had heard and seen, which were just as they had been told.
And on the eighth day...
Simeon took Him in his arms and praised God saying:
"Sovereign Lord, as You have promised,
You now dismiss your servant in peace.
For my eyes have seen your salvation,
which You have prepared in the sight of all people,
a light for revelation to the Gentiles and for glory to your people Israel."
And that, Charlie Brown, is what Christmas is all about.
