What do I like right now?
The dance scene in “A Charlie Brown Christmas.”
A lot of people can tell you what their earliest memory is–I’m not one of them (I can barely remember things from an hour ago). But I admit this scene from the Charlie Brown Christmas special is one of the oldest things I remember seeing first-hand.
I heard this tune on the radio the other day and immediately started car-dancing; in my head I was grooving like Pig Pen (he may be dirty, but boy, does he GET DOWN) although in reality I was doing a combination head bob/Stevie Wonder sway that probably made the drivers around me fear I was having a seizure or was drunk.
This will always be a big part of what Christmas means for me, but I’d really like to dance with this much abandon all year long. If only.
