It's Thanksgiving, Charlie Brown.

A Charlie Brown Thanksgiving made it's debut in 1966. That is over 40 years ago. How proud Charles Schultz must have been to know he was leaving such a great legacy.

And the program still resonates. From the funky funky music, to Peppermint Patty's very boyish voice (was it always this boyish? did I just never notice as a child?), to Marcy's infinite wisdom...it is all so great. And the underlying moral lesson - be thankful for what you have, will not lose its importance anytime soon.

But, I wonder if it is a bad thing that many times, when a grown up speaks to me, I still hear the "wha-wha-wha"?

It's only bad if you're in a spelling bee contest. Happy Thanksgiving!
