Why Linus Drops His Blanket

Here’s a teaser from the article:
In that climactic scene when Linus shares “what Christmas is all about,” he drops his security blanket, and I am now convinced that this is intentional. Most telling is the specific moment he drops it: when he utters the words, “fear not”.
This would be a wonderful reflection and discussion point for a youth group meeting. Or bring it up with your family while they are watching the show.
