I Guess We Better Concentrate on Finding a Nice Christmas Tree

A Charlie Brown Christmas
*!TONIGHT!* - Tuesday, November 28th (8/7CST)

From ABC: The ABC Television Network will celebrate the joy of the holidays with the classic animated Christmas-themed PEANUTS special, A Charlie Brown Christmas, created by late cartoonist Charles M. Schulz. The hour will also include a series of never-before-seen Christmas-themed animated stories entitled Charlie Brown Christmas Tales, based on Schulz's work, in which each of the beloved PEANUTS characters — Charlie Brown, Snoopy, Linus, Lucy and Sally — will star in his or her own charming animated vignette.

Also, check out NPR for "Behind Vince Guaraldi's Timeless Holiday Soundtrack," a charming historical account of the famous Jazz composer, and how his celebrated and memorable set of songs came about. Did you know that the soundtrack has never been out of print since it's release 41 years ago? The 2006 reissue includes four alternate takes of songs found on the original album.
