something wrong with me, Linus.
Christmas is coming, but I'm not happy.
I don't feel the way I'm supposed to feel.
I just don't understand Christmas,
I like getting presents
and sending Christmas cards...
...and decorating trees and all that,
but I'm still not happy.
I always end up feeling depressed.
you're the only person I know...
...who can take a wonderful season
like Christmas and turn it into a problem.
Maybe Lucy's right.
Of all the Charlie Browns in the world,
you're the Charlie Browniest.
Hello in there.
Nobody sent me a Christmas card today.
I almost wish
there weren't a holiday season.
Why do we have to have a holiday season
to emphasize it?
Thanks for the Christmas card
you sent me, Violet.
I didn't send you a Christmas card,
Don't you know sarcasm
when you hear it?
you're the only person I know...
...who can raise a cloud of dust
in a snowstorm.
Try to catch snowflakes
on your tongue.
Mm. Needs sugar.
It's too early.
I never eat December snowflakes.
They sure look ripe to me.
You think you're so smart
with that blanket.
What are you gonna do with it
when you grow up?
Maybe I'll make it into a sport coat.
I think you have a customer.
May I help you?
-I'm in sad shape.
-Wait a minute.
Before you begin,
I must ask that you pay in advance.
Five cents, please.
Boy, what a sound.
How I love to hear that old money plink,
that beautiful sound of cold, hard cash.
That beautiful, beautiful sound.
Nickels, nickels, nickels.
That beautiful sound of plinking nickels.
All right, now,
what seems to be your trouble?
I feel depressed.
I know I should be happy, but I'm not.
Well, as they say on TV...
...the mere fact
that you realize you need help...
...indicates that you are not too far gone.
I think we'd better pinpoint your fears.
If we can find out what you're afraid of,
we can label it.
Are you afraid of responsibility?
If you are, then you have hypengyophobia.
-I don't think that's quite it.
-How about cats?
If you're afraid of cats,
you have ailurophasia.
Well, sort of, but I'm not sure.
Are you afraid of staircases?
If you are, then you have climacophobia.
Maybe you have thalassophobia.
This is fear of the ocean.
which is the fear of crossing bridges.
Or maybe you have pantophobia.
Do you think you have pantophobia?
-The fear of everything.
Actually, Lucy, my trouble is Christmas.
I just don't understand it.
Instead of feeling happy,
I feel sort of let down.
You need involvement.
You need to get involved
in some real Christmas project.
How would you like to be the director
of our Christmas play?
Me? You want me to be the director
of the Christmas play?
Sure, Charlie Brown.
We need a director, you need involvement.
We've got a shepherd, musicians,
animals, everyone you need.
We've even got a Christmas queen.
I don't know anything
about directing a Christmas play.
Don't worry, I'll be there to help you.
I'll meet you at the auditorium.
Incidentally, I know how you feel
about all this Christmas business...
...getting depressed and all that.
I never get what I really want.
I always get a lot of stupid toys
or a bicycle...
...or clothes or something like that.
-What is it you want?
What's going on here?
