For Christmas 2013, the Charles M. Schulz Museum has sent out this peaceful, colorful and charming holiday card featuring Snoopy's brother Spike. The hermit-like beagle, who lives in Needles, California, is decorating his cactus as a Christmas tree. (In one of the classic comic strips, Spike is defeated in this project when he realizes his extension cord won't reach to the nearest electrical outlet many miles away.) I hope this special card makes your Christmastide a little brighter. And Merry Christmas, Mom.
