Christmas Challenge Dec 14
A Charlie Brown Christmas is an app that tells a classic Peanuts tale that is celebrating its 50th anniversary. It's nearly Christmas but Charlie Brown isn't feeling festive, in fact he is depressed and trying to work out what the real meaning of the season is - the rampant commercialism definitely isn't it. By the end of the story Linus and Charlie Brown's other friends have rallied round and helped to cheer him up. The app is well thought out and has interactivity on each page with a few games along the way, including playing carols on a piano. I was reminded of the story by an article written by author Matt Haig about how difficult some people find the festive season, it's very thought provoking & sensitively written, and I'd like to send anyone feeling like Charlie Brown this Christmas a warm virtual hug.
