I’d like to share with you a passion of mine—Alfred Hitchcock movies! I think the first one I ever watched was Rear Window. I was in college and a girlfriend and I went to see it on what must have been dollar movie night.

It’s Christmas time! Faith, family, and fun are all different aspects that people enjoy around the holiday season. Although December 9, 1965 isn’t written about in any history books; it’s a date most people will appreciate. It’s the first time that the beloved Charles M. Schultz classic, A Charlie Brown Christmas, was aired on CBS! It now airs regularly on ABC since it acquired the rights from CBS. It has claimed both an Emmy Award and Peabody Award.
