A Charlie Brown Christmas
The animated classic begins its next half-century, having marked its 50th anniversary last year.

When his attempt to restore the proper spirit with a forlorn little fir tree fails, he needs Linus’ help to learn the real meaning of Christmas. The memorable music score is by Vince Guaraldi.

The Cowboys have benefited greatly from the double-rookie combo of Elliott and quarterback Dak Prescott. Will veteran Tony Romo play a role in this game that could later define home field advantage in the upcoming playoffs?
