One of my all-time favorite Christmas stories is a Charlie Brown Christmas. Debuting December 9, 1965, it’s one of the few things that I’ve seen last 50 years and not lose its magic for me.
Written and performed by Vince Guaraldi, the music is absolutely beautiful, going triple Platinum in the US. It was since awarded both an Emmy and a Peabody.
Christmastime is Here is one of the tunes from the show. It is the music at the very opening and again in a few other places. If you’ve forgotten the show, watch it here.
