Red Skelton Christmas Wish – 1955


 

Ladies and Gentlemen,

For the past twelve weeks you’ve been allowing me to come into your living room, and this time I brought you into my living room. 

I hope that you like this type of show because I personally believe that as long as we have the tree of the Christ child in our living rooms or a wreath on the door and as long as men can kneel down and pray to God, there will be less men down on their knees shooting guns in foxholes. 

Remember, Christmas is the birthday of the Christ child and not a holiday for the greedy. 

And with this in mind, may I say Merry Christmas to you all and God bless you.”
