Linus takes out a piece of paper and an envelope.<BR><BR> Linus thinks, "Happiness is a Christmas vacation with no book reports to write." Linus writes, "Dear Santa Claus, How have you been?"<BR><BR> Linus continues, "Please don't get the idea that I'm writing because I want something."<BR><BR> Linus writes, "Nothing could be further from the truth. I want nothing."<BR><BR> Linus continues, "If you want to skip our house this year, go right ahead. I won't be offended, really I won't."<BR><BR> Linus writes, "Spend your time elsewhere. Don't bother with me. I really mean it."<BR><BR> Lucy picks up the letter and says, "What in the world kind of letter is this?!!"<BR><BR> Linus says, "I'm hoping that he'll find my attitude particularly refreshing."<BR><BR>
Adorable Chuck in the little “happiness” square.
