So in December 22nd, 1985, Charles Schulz made this following Christmas themed Sunday panel featuring Linus and Sally. Linus is reading Sally the second chapter of the Book of Luke (from the Bible), and makes a remark about how King Augustus is near-forgotten while Jesus has an entire holiday dedicated to his birth. Then Sally remarks a rather egotistical statement about how everyone loves her, with Snoopy looking shocked. Linus starts walking away and when Sally asks why he isn't finishing the story he says, "I think you already finished it."
This panel always confused me. I know there's some sort of message here, but I never understood it. It's not true that no one paid any attention to Sally when she was born, because Charlie Brown literally ran out of the house screaming "I'm a father - I mean my Dad's a father - I'm a brother! I have a baby sister" With Linus comically telling Lucy "You didn't act that way when I was born."
Later Charlie Brown pretty much throws a party with everyone getting chocolate cigars (including Snoopy) and talking about how proud he is to be a big brother.
Can someone explain this strip?
