Happy Holidays

Maybe it's because it's only rotation for a small part of the year, but the soundtrack to "A Charlie Brown Christmas" never loses its charm to me. The theme to "Linus and Lucy" or the Peanuts characters singing "Christmas Time Is Here" are probably the most recognizable tunes, but I'm partial to the vampy goodness of another Vince Guaraldi original, "Christmas Is Coming."

NPR has more of the story behind Guaraldi's association with the world of Charles Schulz's Peanuts.

And Happy Holidays (whatever you're celebrating)!
