I cannot remember a time when The Peanuts characters were not part of my world. I had sheets with their adorable faces on them when I was a kid, along with a lunch box & various other toys & collectibles. I still have many of those cherished items today. Every one of the beautiful characters Charles M. “Sparky” Schulz gave us became part of my heart at an early age. They remain my safe place, my familiar place, my constant and my home. And I am convinced that love affair started the first time I watched “A Charlie Brown Christmas” which premiered on December 9, 1965. This season would not be the same without this TV special & its exceptional music. Today’s song is my favorite from that wonderful soundtrack.

  1. Right there with you, Michele. I saw that 1965 premiere, and it’s been my favorite Christmas show ever since. I don’t know whose idea it was to score it with jazz music, but it was brilliant. And this song is my favorite, as well, beautiful in its simplicity.

  2. How great that you were there to witness history in the making! I am so happy to know you cherish The Peanuts as much as I do. What a beautiful world Mr. Schulz created for us. And from what I have read in different Peanuts books over the years, producer & song co-writer Lee Mendelson was a fan of jazz music so he chose the score for the show. I love that he used grown up music for what was considered a children’s special.
