Merry Christmas, family, friends, followers!
One of the longstanding Christmas traditions in our home is to play the Vice Guaraldi Trio’s A Charlie Brown Christmas. We aren’t all together this year because of restrictions on gatherings, but we can still honour our traditions and adapt them to this “temporary normal.”
When Sweety and I and the boys moved into our house 18 years ago, the kids would wake up Christmas morning to see sled marks in the snow on the garage roof. I always figured Santa overshot the top of the house because it is high and steep, and he’d bounce on the garage on the way to another try.
I asked my lads last night for their favourites from the album. One didn’t have a particular choice, though the other immediately said, “Christmas Time Is Here (Instrumental).”
Tomorrow, I’ll share my favourite from the album.
Now you know a little about why this is my song of the day for today. Thanks for joining me here, and please enjoy.
