Tis the season...

To the great annoyance of some viewers, the recent airing on ABC of the much beloved holiday special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, was edited down to make room for--you guessed it--more commercials. What makes this so ironic is that the special is all about how rampant commercialism nearly destroys spirit of the holidays for Charlie Brown and his friends. These edits did not go unnoticed by die-hard fans and DorkTower.com has posted this open letter to ABC voicing its displeasure at the crimping of a family favourite for profit.
