I'm a Charlie Brown Christmas too. Funny, it is my favorite Christmas movie and I love Snoofy.

That's what Katie calls him, she sees lots of Snoopy decorations but hasn't seen or remembered the movie yet.

I may steal this meme from you too.

I'm a Charlie Brown Christmas too... and I love Elvis! (But the video was no longer available when I tried to click on it -- guessing it was Blue Christmas??? That's a great one!)

I'm a Charlie Brown Christmas, too. I married a Muppets' Christmas. We don't know how we've gone so many years without knowing or even noticing!
