Celebrate This Christmas with Charlie Brown
Merry Christmas, everyone! It is that week of the year again, when we load up the Christmas tree with presents and hand out gifts to our friends and loved ones. Christmas is a special season, as it just seems like everyone becomes just a little bit kinder for it. It is a time of traditional and good cheer. One such tradition that we indulge in every Christmas is the Charlie Brown Christmas Special, which is played around this season. In fact, this special has been running on TV for over 50 years now. If this TV special means as much to you as it does to J. Price McNamara, then we encourage you to read on to find out how you could celebrate it this week.

50 Years of Charlie Brown for Christmas

50 years ago, “A Charlie Brown Christmas” debuted, and has been played every Christmas since, making it the longest running cartoon special in the history of television. Ever since then, the special has become an icon, quoted by millions of people every Christmas. 50 years is quite a milestone, and the West Baton Rouge Museum believes that this milestone should be well celebrated. Running from now to January 3rd, 2016, the West Baton Rouge Museum is hosting a celebration of the cartoon’s 50th anniversary. While there isn’t that much time left, there is still time enough for you to stop by and check the exhibit out this Christmas season. If you are a fan of Charlie Brown and the gang, you will probably get a kick out of seeing artwork and other creations from the talented members of the Baton Rouge Cartoonist Society. The museum has also managed to get their hands on various Peanuts items and artifacts, which are on loan from various local visitors. Thanks to the help of this donated material, the West Baton Rouge Museum was able to put together a celebration that is truly worthy of the film. If you are looking for something to do this Christmas break, we happily recommend you visit this exhibit. The museum is open Tuesday through Saturday, from 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. On Sundays, it is open from 2 p.m. to 5 p.m.

Schedule a Personal Injury Consultation

While the holiday time is generally full of cheer and happiness, it can be possible that you hurt yourself during it. If this is your case and you are unsure how to progress, then we encourage you to contact our office and schedule a no-obligation case review with Metairie and Baton Rouge’s J. Price McNamara. We are ready and willing to help you out should your situation call for it.

Losing my own brother, then my father and sister after long, disabling illnesses just a few months apart drove a career change for me. Before that experience, I never truly understood the place you’re in. I never understood the dramatic impact that receiving (or not receiving) the disability and life insurance benefits you paid for and counted on can have on your life especially when you need to focus on family and healing. What I experienced with my own family now drives the way I view my clients and my work, and I will never forget it!
